It seems the Stockton Unified School District (SUSD) Board will take a two-year respite looking for a permanent Superintendent. On Tuesday, July 27, 2010, boardmembers voted 6-1 (with trustee Jose Morales dissenting) to offer a 2-year contract to Carl Toliver.

Toliver, who has spent 33 years in the district —twice in the last five years as Interim (acting) Superintendent— was welcomed by most stakeholders as a knowledgeable educator and a peacemaker all sides can trust.

The Board approved the contract —that’s still to be signed “pending some details”— where Toliver was to be paid the salary he gets now ($230,000 a year) which is $30K less than what the last superintendent, Tony Amato, was being paid.

Would the upcoming Board —four members are to be replaced or reelected, comes November— decide to select a new Superintendent, the contract entitles Toliver to up to a full year salary compensation.
