New school superintendent selected

PRESS RELEASE

DATE: June 10, 2015
FROM: Kate Livingston, Governing Board President
RE: Selection of a Finalist for Superintendent, Cabrillo Unified School District

The Cabrillo Unified School Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that a finalist for the position of Superintendent has been identified and final negotiations for a contract are in progress. It is anticipated that ratification of the appointment of Ms Jane Yuster as the district’s next superintendent will occur at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Education on June 18, 2015. Currently, Ms Yuster is an Assistant Superintendent in Human Resources, Assessment, and Student Services in the Redwood City School District.

Ms Yuster is excited to head Cabrillo Unified School District. “I am honored and privileged to be offered the position of Superintendent of Cabrillo Unified School District. I have lived on the Coastside for fifteen years. Serving as the Superintendent feels like coming home.”

Ms Yuster has worked in Redwood City School District since 2008 in administrative positions, and as a classroom teacher in the early 2000s.  Prior to her career in education, Ms Yuster worked in the biotechnology industry in Arizona.

The Board of Trustees made its decision with input gathered from all key stakeholder groups in the district regarding the qualities of the next Superintendent. Dr. Michael Escalante and Dr. Peggy Lynch, consultants from the firm of Leadership Associates, assisted the Board in the search.

Representatives of stakeholders in CUSD will visit Ms Yuster’s district this week.

Ms Yuster experiences as a former business CEO, teacher, principal, district administrator and assistant superintendent have equipped her with the necessary knowledge and effective leadership skills desired in CUSD. She will help us prepare all our students to become well-educated and well-rounded citizens in the 21st century.

Hatch Elementary received threatening phone call, initiated lock-down

PRESS RELEASE

Hatch Elementary was placed in a lock down this afternoon. The school received a phone call at about 1:20 p.m. The call was answered by office staff who reported an individual using some sort of technology to disguise their voice, stated they were on their way with a gun to the school to hurt students. The call was also blocked, so no identification of the caller is possible. The Sheriff’s Department was called and responded immediately. I was contacted at 1:25 p.m. and placed Pilarcitos and the District office into lock down as well. Deputies also went to HMB High and Cunha, though these two schools were not placed in lock down.

Deputies arriving at Hatch quickly developed their perimeter and assessed the situation. Once a lock down is initiated and law enforcement responds, they make all decisions from that point until the lock down is removed. At 1:55 p.m, the lock down was removed and primary students were released to their parents (dismissal time is 1:45 p.m.). Deputies remained on campus through the 2:35 p.m. intermediate grade dismissal. Deputies also remained present at the high school and Cunha through their dismissal periods. Deputies will return tomorrow to sweep the various schools to further ensure the safety of students and staff. Jim Ward, Hatch principal, also sent out a robot-call informing families of the event.

We are working with Lt. Munsey to set up a meeting to debrief the events. Initial information shows this was very well handled. Staff at Hatch and Pilarcitos did a great job in quickly securing classrooms and offices. The Sheriff’s Department response was also excellent. Thank you to all involved for your response. Should any new information develop, I will be happy to send this out.
