Burbank Unified Supt. Stan Carrizosa is going back to the Central Valley.
Today, the affable superintendent announced his decision to serve as president the College of the Sequoias in Visalia, Calif. effective July 1.
His decision comes roughly two years after being hired by Burbank Unified. Prior to that move, Carrizosa was superintendent of Visalia Unified School District.
In his announcement, Carrizosa acknowledged the short turnaround, but said he was humbled to have the opportunity to move to a “new level of educational leadership.”
“I have never left a position after such a short tenure so the unexpected timing of this change is a new experience for me,” he said in his statement. “In this short time however, I have learned what many of you know so well and that is how unique and special this community is and the vital role [Burbank Unified] plays in shaping this wonderful culture.”
He went on to say that he would be working with the Burbank Unified school board to “assure a positive transition over the next few weeks for our students, staff, and school community."
