TUSD announces Dr. Gabriel Trujillo as next superintendent

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - After a comprehensive search, the Tucson Unified School District on Tuesday, Aug. 22, announced its choice for superintendent, Dr. Gabriel Trujillo.

This is just the first step, now Trujillo has to agree to the contract before anything becomes official.

Dr. Nic Clement, search consultant, said the goal is to have everything finalized by the beginning of next week. The four candidates spent last week in interviews and participating in public forums.

"There is not a perfect way to do these forums but I think the goal was to get stakeholder feedback," Clement said. "For them to get the opportunity to not only listen to the candidates but they have the opportunity to give feedback."

If Trujillo doesn't agree to the contract, it will be up to the board to decide what they want to do next.
