Is this the same board that last year hired the superintendent from Mountain View with a controversial history and gave him a salary of $204,000?

Yes. And the same Board Member who just voted to give the construction company another $50,000 to finish Hillview on time even though they were obligated to do so under the contract.

Yes, and while the jury is still out on how he perform in the long term, so far it looks like a solid hire for the school district. The school board works hard on behalf of our students but I didn't always believe that. I was a skeptic who assumed they were all resume-builders with hidden agendas until I started paying attention and attending every board meeting. I now realize they're a group of smart, talented individuals who are passionate about providing quality education within our community. That's it. I don't want to be on the school board, that's for sure, so I'm thankful to those who do and who represent our District's interests so well. This is a tough time in California for public education, so many of the decisions that will be made going forward (particularly with November's vote) will need to be carefully considered. Glad to know this group will do that.
