Stanislaus County Schools Chief Not Running For Reelection; Three Enter Race
Current Superintendent of Schools for Stanislaus County Tom Changnon has announced he will not run for reelection.
Now three candidates have entered the ring to take over as chief of schools:
- Gratton School District Superintendent Shannon Sanford
- Waterford Unified School District Superintendent Don Davis
- Stanislaus County Office of Education Assistant Superintendent Scott Kuykendall
In a letter, Superintendent Changnon endorsed Assistant Superintendent Kuykendall for the job.
“He can easily assume the reins as Superintendent with total transparency and keep staff focused on the important work they perform each day.” Said Changon of Kuykendall.
The man who had the job before Changon, Martin Petersen has endorsed Superintendent Davis.
“When I was superintendent of the County, I was impressed with Don’s educational leadership,” said Petersen. “Like me, he has a love for kids and wants to see them all succeed!”
Davis also has the support of several other Superintendents in the area.
