96% of Educators Oppose Extension of SCUSD Superintendent’s Contract
Last week, the SCUSD school board unanimously voted to extend the contract of Superintendent Jorge Aguilar to 2023. Mr. Aguilar’s contract was not set to expire until June 30, 2021, eighteen months from now. A majority of 4 out of 7 school board seats will have elections in November 2020.
The justification for the two-year extension was because he received a positive evaluation in 2017-18 and 2018-19.
In the same action, the board also voted that any year that the superintendent gets a positive evaluation his contract would automatically be extended by an additional year.
The school board vote was unanimous.
We asked what SCTA members thought about it.
The results: 95.8% disagreed with the extension.
