Grand Jury finds Stockton Unified trustees unsuccessful as district leaders

A San Joaquin County civil grand jury has identified the Stockton Unified Faculty District Board of Trustees have unsuccessful as district leaders and will possible continue to do so. 

A scathing 33-website page report released by the 2020-21 grand jury claims Stockton Unified trustees are the immediate purpose for what is actually been called the district’s “revolving door” of superintendents.

Stockton Unified has experienced 14 interim and permanent superintendents in just more than 30 years, various of which in modern many years have still left ahead of satisfying their contracts.

The report displays that practically all assumed the superintendent part from 2005 to 2021, with only six having been long-lasting and regular tenure lasting about 19 months. The district has improved management three situations in the earlier year by yourself.

“The grand jury observed that there is widespread concern about the limited tenure of SUSD superintendents, in particular in the very last 15 yrs,” the report claims. “This turnover price, which is as substantial as anyplace in California, is a foremost indication that the trustees have unsuccessful, and will continue to fall short, to properly lead the district.”
