In its effort to establish criteria for selecting a new superintendent, the ABC Unified School District Board of Education has scheduled a special meeting for 6 p.m. Jan. 7.
This will be the board's second special meeting to discuss how to replace Kenneth L. Moffett, whose resignation is effective March 25.
The board is soliciting proposals from executive recruiting firms. On Tuesday, it heard presentations from Don Steele of the Pacific Institute in Seattle and Thomas Perez of Competency Technology Systems in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
"We're trying to find the best method to find a superintendent who will stay and be really effective," board President Catherine Grant said.
