San Diego Unified School District plans to announce its new superintendent Dec. 18, according to district spokesperson Ursula Kroemer.
The announcement is expected to follow visits to the finalist’s home site this week. The new superintendent will replace outgoing Superintendent Carl Cohn, who announced his departure in September and will leave the school district at the end of the year.
Cohn recently accepted a position as a distinguished leader in residence at San Diego State University’s College of Education, where he will lecture, research and write.
Update: District spokesperson Ursula Kroemer stressed that Dec. 18th is a tentative date for the announcement, and not set in stone. “We’re still on track with the superintendent search process,” Kroemer said. “There’s nothing to disclose at this point, and we’re hoping to keep with the tentative benchmark for an announcement on the 18th.”
