The Pleasanton school board hold a special meeting Wednesday to discuss and possibly take action to conduct a search for a replacement for Pleasanton schools superintendent Parvin Ahmadi, who is resigning from the school district after accepting an offer to become the new superintendent of the Castro Valley Unified School District starting July 1.
The superintendent discussion will begin at 6 p.m. in the district's boardroom, 4665 Bernal Ave.
Ahmadi wrote in an email to PUSD teachers and staff May 28 about her resignation and new position.
The CVUSD Board of Education appointed Ahmadi during its meeting May 28. She will succeed Castro Valley's current superintendent, Jim Negri, who is retiring.
Pleasanton board trustees were also notified last Thursday that Ahmadi accepted a new position, according to PUSD school board president Valerie Arkin.
"We are confident that our excellent school district will attract a large pool of well-qualified candidates for the position of superintendent," Arkin said "on behalf of the Board of Trustees" in an email interview last Friday. "We look forward to working in tandem with the Pleasanton community to make this important selection in the coming months."
Prior to open session, the board will meet in closed session, at 4 p.m., to appoint an interim superintendent and assistant superintendent of human resources.
Any action taken in closed session will be reported out in open session.
