The Pleasanton school board will meet in closed session at 6 p.m. tonight to continue deliberating on naming an interim replacement for outgoing superintendent Parvin Ahmadi, who three weeks ago announced her resignation effective July 1 when she will become the new superintendent of the Castro Valley Unified School District.
School board members held a special meeting June 12 to consider the appointment of Ahmadi's interim replacement but took no action on that issue.
That morning they did appoint Dianne Howell as the interim assistant superintendent of human resources to replace Bill Faraghan, who retired this month.
Howell retired as Pleasanton Unified School District's director of human resources in 2011 and had 24 years of service overall in the district.
Trustees also met in closed session during June 9 to consider appointing interim replacements for both positions but no formal action was taken then. They discussed possible candidates for the positions and directed legal counsel to prepare and negotiate contracts. An announcement is expected to be made and contracts to be considered for approval at an upcoming board meeting.
