Klamath-Trinity’s New Superintendent Backs Out of Job

The Klamath-Trinity Joint Unified School District has been left scrambling for a new superintendent after the man who was set to take over backed out of the job.

Brian Spears was supposed to start on July 1. He finalized his contract back in May. He has since said he can't go through with the move because of health concerns.

“We are currently continuing on,” Trisha Cisneros, administrative assistant to the superintendent, said of the news. “We aren’t at a standstill, but we’re working with our board president and the rest of our board to hopefully get an interim.”

The school board will likely discuss plans for an interim superintendent at its next meeting on Aug. 13, according to the Times-Standard.
