HOLTVILLE — The Holtville Unified School District hired Anne Mallory on Tuesday as its interim superintendent.
Mallory, former superintendent of the Westmorland Union Elementary School District, was recently named special assistant to John Anderson, county superintendent of schools. She will help direct the Holtville district while the Board of Trustees conducts a search for a superintendent.
"I am really looking forward to the opportunity to work with the Holtville school district and support the staff and students and community to achieve wonderful things," Mallory said. "I feel fully confident that will happen."
District employees will have the opportunity to meet Mallory on Thursday afternoon.
The trustees voted 4-1 to accept the "separation agreement and general release" for outgoing Superintendent Carlos Vega. The dissenting vote came from Trustee Paula Daniels. Following the meeting Daniels said she has a "real fundamental problem with buyouts."
