Superintendent Scott Resigns From Southern Humboldt Unified School District
Though she still has a year left on her contract, Southern Humboldt Unified School District superintendent, Catherine Scott, elected to resign. According to Board President Dennis O’Sullivan, “We received Catherine’s resignation Friday evening. We wish her well.”
At a meeting last week, the Board decided not to extend her contract beyond the 2018 end date, O’Sullivan said. The Board will likely look for someone to take an interim position and then conduct an in-depth search for a candidate able to take the position long term, he explained.
Scott began her time as superintendent in 2012 but had previously worked as Dean of Students at South Fork High School.
Scott grew up in Humboldt County, graduated from St. Bernards in 1987, and then returned to teach there after receiving her credential.
