HOLTVILLE — The Holtville Unified School District remains without a superintendent following a special board meeting last night.
For two months the district has searched for a new superintendent following the release of former superintendent Carlos Vega for yet undisclosed reasons.
In May, the board voted 4-1 to approve a more than $100,000 separation agreement with Vega.
Vega had been with the five-school district for three years, serving as high school principal for one year and superintendent for two.
Anne Mallory, a former Westmorland Union Elementary School superintendent, has served as interim superintendent since Vega's release.
To conduct its search for a new superintendent, the district hired the Imperial County Office of Education.
Last night's special meeting served as a second interview for a female superintendent candidate, said board president Bill Thornburg.
The interview was held during closed session.
The interviews are conducted by a five member community panel made up of residents appointed by the board. In addition, representatives from the teacher's union, administrative staff, ICOE Superintendent John Anderson, Mallory and the board were present.
