No finalists for Tucson superintendent post were local

TUCSON, Ariz. -- None of the four finalists who were granted interviews for the top spot in the Tucson Unified School District had ties to the community or to Arizona.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that 35 out of the 67 people who applied for the superintendent's post had ties to the district, Tucson or Arizona. None of them made the final list.

H.T. Sanchez from Odessa, Texas, was hired. The other three finalists were from Virginia, Texas and Washington. Their names were released by the school district Friday under court order.

The district initially withheld the names. It claimed executive session privilege, but was ordered to release them last month after the Arizona Daily Star sued.

Governing Board President Adelita Grijalva said the fact that no district employees were considered isn't a reflection of the skill level within the district.
