Capistrano Unified School District’s superintendent hunt may take longer than expected.
The district Board of Trustees recently hired a new search consultant, Leadership Associates of La Quinta, to help fill the position being vacated by Superintendent Joseph Farley at the end of June.
The board met in special session Sunday, May 18 to make the hire, replacing an earlier national search firm choice. The contact comes with a $26,000 price tag.
The consultants will likely focus on California candidates, according to board President John Alpay. In the meantime, the district could appoint an interim superintendent.
