Second Seattle superintendent finalist withdraws

Sandy Husk, one of two remaining candidates for superintendent of Seattle Public Schools, has withdrawn as a finalist.

Husk, superintendent of the Salem-Keizer School District, had been one of two finalists remaining after Steven Enoch withdrew as a finalist over the weekend.

According to The Statesman Journal:

“In my communication with people inside the district last week, it became apparent that there are competing approaches as to where the district should go and how it should get there,” Husk said in a statement.

She went on to say:

” I do not feel like I am a good match for that situation. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone in Seattle last week and I wish the best for the students, staff, board and community.”

Her departure leaves just Jose Banda, who currently heads a small, elementary-only school district in Anaheim, Calif., in the running for the Seattle job.
