.School District Seeks Superintendent

Pajaro Valley Unified School District will appoint an interim leader Wednesday after Superintendent Michelle Rodriguez announced her departure.

The Pajaro Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees on Wednesday are scheduled to appoint an interim leader to fill the vacancy when current Superintendent, Michelle Rodriguez, leaves on June 30.

Clint Rucker, who currently serves as the district’s Chief Business Officer, will take the helm during the search. He says he has no plans to make the move permanent.

Rodriguez announced her departure on June 2 after she took a position at Stockton Unified School District. 

Also during the meeting, the trustees will hear presentations from two firms that will conduct the national search for a new superintendent.

According to its proposal, Omaha, Neb.-based McPherson & Jacobson would charge “an amount not to exceed” $29.800.

Glendora, Calif.-based Leadership Associates—which conducted the previous search when Rodriguez was hired—would charge $26,500. 

The trustees will make their choice during their July 12 meeting.

Rodriguez’s departure comes about three years after the board fired her in a 4-3 vote, a move that was unanimously overturned four days later after hundreds of community members voiced their disapproval over two marathon meetings. 

Rodriguez says the termination played no part in her decision to leave.

  1. This woman should have been terminated when it was voted on. Over $256,000 salary and what does she have to show for it all. Absolutely nothing! This woman stole our tax dollars for her salary and boom guess what she is white but nobody crying about how she isn’t helping our children besides shoving her liberal/leftist propaganda. Just see what she said about the recent Supreme Court strike down. She’s part of the club we aren’t a part of. She is towing the line. Take a stand parents and leave CA this state is going down the drain.
