It’s day one for Terry Grier, the new superintendent of San Diego Unified schools. Grier is taking over California’s second-largest school district in the midst of a statewide budget crisis that has portended layoffs for hundreds of teachers.
No pressure, right?
Grier kicked off his superintendency with a visit to Morse High School, and is addressing the media this afternoon at Lincoln High School alongside State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell. The topic? Those all-consuming budget cuts.
The new superintendent has laid out an ambitious plan for his first 100 days in the district. His tasks include revamping the school report cards that list each individual school’s test scores and demographics, creating attendance incentives for students, and redesigning San Diego Unified budgets to be readily understood by the public.
