Return Of Dr. Barbot

DR. ROBERT BARBOT NAMED INTERIM SUPERINTENDENT
In a press release early this evening the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, through its Director of Communications, Laura Boss, announced that Dr. Robert Barbot will return to the district as interim superintendent. He replaces disgraced convicted felon, Dr. Jeffrey Hubbard, who was fired a week ago following his conviction on two felony charges involving crimes committed while the superintendent of the Beverly Hills School District.

SECOND TIME AROUND
Dr. Barbot, who served the district for eight years before retiring in June, 2006, will begin his new role sometime between February 23rd and March 5th. His contract will continue until July 31, 2012.

WILL HEAD THE REPLACEMENT SEARCH
According to the press release, Barbot's duties will include conducting a nationwide sear
ch for a new permanent superintendent for the district. Although the details of the contract are still being worked out, we are told that he will receive $960 per day plus a housing allowance - Barbot lives in northern California - during his tour as interim superintendent. If you only count "work days", that means he will receive well over $100,000 plus the housing allowance for this period of service. Since he was a highly-respected leader during his previous tour, it sounds like a bargain to me. His presence should be a calming influence on the district at a time when that kind of leadership is needed.

HOPING FOR A DIFFERENT RESULT
I don't know if Dr. Barbot was involved in the search that resulted in Hubbard's selection as his replacement. If so, I hope he and those with whom he will be collaborating on this new search will step back and evaluate that process to be sure the results are better this time around.
