    Superintendent search: Board to interview finalists

    The Folsom Cordova Board of Education on Thursday, April 13 met with executive search firm Leadership Associates to vet candidates who have applied to become the District’s next superintendent.

    The Board has selected finalists to interview during closed sessions April 22-23. Finalists were selected from a pool of 22 applicants, which included a diverse pool of candidates who currently serve as superintendents, as well as deputy and assistant superintendents.

    The Board is tentatively expected to announce FCUSD’s next superintendent, and approve an employment agreement, at its regularly scheduled public meeting May 4. The search firm Leadership Associates used input taken from many stakeholder feedback forums - including a Feb. 1 public and community forum to craft the job description for superintendent applicants. 

    FCUSD Superintendent Deborah Bettencourt announced earlier this year that she is retiring at the end of the school year.
