VACAVILLE — The search is on for a new associate superintendent of business services as Kari Sousa steps down to focus on her family.
Lettie Allen, who served in the position both in the Vacaville School District and with the Solano County Office of Education before her 2012 retirement, will step into the position as an interim.
“Letty stepped right up to the plate to support us,” Superintendent Ken Jacopetti said. “Even though she’s retired, she (agreed) to help us.”
The district will conduct a nationwide search over the next several months with the assistance of California School Services, an organization that Jacopetti said specializes in searches for school financial candidates.
Interviews will be in May and June, with the plan to have someone in place by the start of the new fiscal year July 1.
While Sousa’s last day is Friday, Jacopetti said she agreed to help us “in whatever way we need” during the transition. Jacopetti said that school leaders are confident with Allen in the interim position, “but at the same time we’re going to miss Kari.”
