The Pleasanton school board appointed Dianne Howell as the interim assistant superintendent of human resources, but did not name an interim replacement for outgoing superintendent Parvin Ahmadi during its special meeting Friday morning.
Howell retired as Pleasanton Unified School District's director of human resources in 2011 and had 24 years of service overall in the district. She replaces Bill Faraghan, who will retire this month.
According to board president Valerie Arkin, the board is set to meet again in closed session June 22 at 6 p.m. to continue deliberating on the interim superintendent position.
Ahmadi will leave July 1 to become the new superintendent of the Castro Valley Unified School District.
Trustees met in closed session Tuesday night to consider appointing interim replacements for these positions but no formal action was taken then.
They discussed possible candidates for the position and directed legal counsel to prepare and negotiate contracts. An announcement will be made and contracts will be considered for approval at an upcoming board meeting.
