We hope that you can establish a positive working relationship with the Board, the community, and the teachers. Developing a positive relationship and sustained, consistent leadership is required for school improvement.
We regret the prompt attacks on your character and your contract by the Sacramento Bee editorial board. You see they were staunch advocates for the prior Superintendent Jonathan Raymond, a Broad Foundation assisted superintendent. He left promptly without an explanation. It is unusual for the Bee to attack a new superintendent before he has an opportunity to make some decisions.
