The newly elected superintendent Dr. Carvalho made his first visit to a professional organization in California and that organization is ACSA. ACSA REGION 16 is pleased to see our organization welcome and introduce Superintendent Carvalho to his fellow California Superintendents. The interview was conducted in a hall full of superintendents. The questions included his story, life, and his why for education. His strong leadership, commitment to instruction opportunity, and rigor were evident. Making equity and justice a real priority. Representing LAUSD and ACSA Region 16 was our new Superintendency Council Representative, Frances Baez, LD Central Superintendent.
