Bellflower Unified Superintendent Placed on Leave

Bellflower Unified Superintendent Tracy McSparren has been placed on paid administrative leave, effective June 28. The decision follows a scathing state audit which claimed the district amassed $83 million in reserves while failing to provide essential student services. Both the public and the school board were misled about district finances, according to the report.  

On June 16, the Board of Education voted not to renew its contract with McSparren, which is now up. But the district’s attorney advised that the move was “unlawful.”

McSparren has led the district since 2018. She previously served as an Assistant Principal and the Principal of Bellflower High School, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, and the Assistant Superintendent of Special Education and Support Services.
