Carpinteria School District Selects Finalist for Superintendent

Carpinteria Unified School District board members have chosen a finalist to take over as superintendent and plan to vote on the employment contract at the May 27 meeting, interim superintendent Jeff Chancer said.

At Tuesday’s meeting, board president Andy Sheaffer announced the district’s pick is Micheline Miglis, who is currently working as the superintendent for Plumas County and the Plumas Unified School District in northern California.

Miglis reportedly announced her resignation at her current district on Tuesday but didn’t disclose which district she was joining, according to the Plumas County News. Local media also reported she was hired to that position in October 2012 and is trilingual, speaking English, Spanish and Greek.

She manages the K-12 district’s 2,400 students in eight schools, and alternative education and opportunity schools.

Carpinteria Unified’s board has been looking for a replacement since longtime district leader Paul Cordeiro left for a job in Santa Clarita at the Newhall School District. Chancer has been filling in since February.

Board members held closed session special meetings to interview candidates on April 24 and 25 and held another closed session at Tuesday night’s meeting regarding labor negotiations for the superintendent position.

The new superintendent will oversee Carpinteria Unified’s nine schools and approximately 2,300 K-12 students.

The next regularly scheduled school board meeting is May 27, moved to a Wednesday because of the Memorial Day holiday. There is a special board meeting study session scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. May 27 and will be followed by a regular board meeting at 5:30 p.m., both held at City Hall at 5775 Carpinteria Ave. in Carpinteria.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
