Superintendent Steven Enoch is leaving to take a similar job in the Bay Area town of Danville.
Enoch has led San Juan for the past three years. He’s credited with improving the district’s financial status, bringing new technology into classrooms and trying to close the racial achievement gap.
Critics say he acted too quickly to close down and consolidate several schools.
Enoch begins his new job on July 1st.
San Juan officials say recruitment will begin immediately for a new superintendent to lead the district.
A public forum will be held on May 29th to let the community weigh in on qualities they’d like to see in the next superintendent.
