Richard Bray has been named superintendent of the Tustin Unified School District, officials announced Friday.
Bray, superintendent of Hesperia Unified School District in San Bernardino County for the last 12 years, will begin work Monday at the 20,500-student Tustin district.
Former Supt. Peter Gorman left in May to become chief of a school district in North Carolina.
Deputy Supt. Brock Wagner, who has been serving as interim superintendent since Gorman’s departure, will return to his former position.
