TUSD superintendent candidates to appear at nightly forums

The four finalists to lead the Tucson Unified School District are being interviewed this week, including by the public at nightly Q&A sessions with each candidate.

The candidates include three familiar names — ex-principal Stephen Trejo, elementary director Maria Marin, interim superintendent Gabriel Trujillo — and one outsider: Donna Hargens, who resigned under fire last month from her Kentucky district, which is being audited by the state over allegations of mismanagement.

The finalists fwill be interviewed by the Governing Board, meet with employee groups and hold question-and-answer sessions with community members this week. One finalist per day will be reviewed Monday through Thursday. The public community visits are set for 7-9 p.m. in the auditorium of Catalina High School each day, with Thursday's meeting held at Sahuaro High School instead.
