Superintendent Search Information
Benicia Unified School District is heading for the home stretch as we enter the interview process of our search for a new Superintendent. The application process has closed and staff at McPherson & Jacobson, LLC are pouring through the files to vet the applicants. We have gathered input from stakeholders and created questions for the interview process and the next step is for the Trustees to review the vetted applicants and select those that will be interviewed. The Governing Board will hold a special closed session meeting on April 22nd here at the District Office board room at 6pm to determine which candidates will be interviewed.
Interviews by both the Board and a Stakeholder panel will take place the week of April 27th. Click here for more information on the search.
