MPUSD still deadlocked in new superintendent

Well, trustees with the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District met again Monday evening, a continuation of their very lengthy Thursday meeting, and still they did not seem to reach an agreement.

As you probably recall, three trustees and three community members took a trip to Southern California to visit the district of the top candidate. When they came back, the agenda contained approval of a new superintendent and a reception to welcome her.

But trustees did not approve the contract and did not welcome anybody. Instead, they scheduled a special meeting to discuss the contract and the selection.

Board member Tim Chaney read a scathing letter at the beginning of the special meeting Thursday, accusing Board President Jon Hill of tainting the process and asking for a new process.

Trustees then went into closed session and did not come out until about 9 p.m. with nothing to report. They scheduled another meeting for Monday, which took place as scheduled, and still, nothing to report.

Trustees scheduled yet another meeting for Wednesday at 5:30 p.m., another continuation. Whether there will be a new superintendent at the end of the meeting, who knows. Stay tuned.
