In a new video on the LA Unified website, Board President Steve Zimmer provides the latest count of how many people offered opinions on the superintendent search and what the next steps are in the process.
Zimmer said 13,500 people went to the website to read about the superintendent search, more than 8,000 filled out the survey and 1,500 people attended meetings that were held across the district over two weeks. In a previous interview, he said he’s not completely happy with the turnout, but he wanted to thank the people who did spend the time.
With Spanish subtitles, he said, “I thank every person who turned in a survey, who attended a meeting and who followed the search process.”
He mentioned that the search firm will compile a report and it will be released at the next board meeting, on Nov. 10.
Zimmer said, “Those opinions shared will help guide the board in deciding who will be the superintendent of the nations second largest school district.”
There are also nearly 50 comments so far about the superintendent search process.
