In keeping with its tradition of secrecy, the Tucson Unified School Board selected four potential candidates for the superintendent spot, but refused to reveal the candidates’ names at Tuesday night’s Board meeting.
The Board voted unanimously to consider the four secret candidates to fill the spot left by former Superintendent H.T. Sanchez, who was forced to resign last year.
Dr. Nic Clement was hired by the Board to lead the secretive process.
In 2013, TUSD lost a lawsuit filed by the Arizona Daily Star and was forced to reveal superintendent candidate identities. The Board revealed the names, but announced that only one candidate, H.T. Sanchez, was a finalist for the position.
