Hart Board Picks Castellanos

After just minutes of discussion Friday night, Hart school board members offered the helm of the district to an Orange County assistant superintendent who will, if hired, become its first-ever minority superintendent. The decision to hire Jaime Castellanos came easily after the board’s early morning trip to the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, where Castellanos is currently assistant superintendent of secondary schools, board members said.

 “It was eye-opening,” said board member Gloria Mercado-Fortine. “They were really finding it very difficult to see him leave, and that says a lot.”
    If contract talks are successful, the 28-year veteran in education would take over leadership of the William S. Hart Union High School District on July 1.
