FAIRFIELD — A 7:30 a.m. visit to the Public Safety Academy is among trips State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson is scheduled to make Feb. 3 when he visits schools in the Fairfield-Suisun School District.
He’ll also go to the David Weir School K-8 Preparatory Academy and Crystal Middle School, said Kris Corey, superintendent of Fairfield-Suisun district.
“This is really an honor for Fairfield-Suisun to have the California state superintendent come to our district,” she said.
Tina Jung, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Education, said Torlakson gets a lot of invitations from school districts.
“They get to show off their programs,” she said.
Times on Torlakson’s schedule for Feb. 3 are tentative, Jung said.
The San Francisco Chronicle said this week that Torlakson, who had been a Contra Costa County supervisor, was seen as a possible candidate to succeed George Miller, D-Martinez, as 11th Congressional District representative after Miller announced he’ll retire. But the paper said a spokesman for Torlakson said he is not running.
Torlakson, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, California Community Colleges Chancellor Brice Harris and California Workforce Investment Board Executive Director Tim Rainey will take part in a joint teleconference at 10 a.m. Tuesday to discuss California Career Pathways Trust, a $250 million state fund to keep more students in school and prepare them for careers, according to a news release.
