TUSD Superintendent Kang-Smith placed on Administrative leave
At Wednesday’s Board Meeting, the Temple City Unified School District Board voted unanimously to place Superintendent Dr. Chelsea Kang-Smith on administrative leave effective immediately.
“We thank Ms. Kang-Smith for her six years of work at TCUSD since she became Superintendent in 2008,” said Board President Kien Tiet. “However, given this time of great opportunity and change in education, we determined we needed to begin the transition now to lay the groundwork for the leadership change this summer. We wish Chelsea well in all future endeavors.”
The Board will call a future Special Board meeting to discuss the appointment of an acting Superintendent.
“Though this was a hard decision, we know it is in the best interest of the students of Temple City,” said Tiet. “We are taking very seriously the Superintendent search to find the right person who will lead TCUSD into the future. The most critical voices during this process are from our parents, teachers and community members, and we will actively seek their participation in the process to find a new District leader.”
