Oakland Schools Administrator Takes San Jose Job

Vince Matthews, the state administrator of Oakland public schools, will take over as the new superintendent of San Jose Unified School District on July 1, the Mercury News reports. Matthews accepted the position last night, which means that State Superintendent Jack O’Connell will have to hire a new state administrator for Oakland Unified. The new administrator, however, will have a limited role — much like Matthews did — because the school district is now back under local control and has its own superintendent: Tony Smith.
