Education in Oakland

Big Money for a Big Job

Posted by novometro on September 15, 2006

State school chief Jack O’Connell announced Friday morning that Kimberley Statham will be his woman in Oakland. Ms. Statham will earn $240,000 a year as the state administrator overseeing Oakland Unified School District. Previously Oakland Unified’s former chief academic officer, Ms. Statham took the job on an interim basis after Randolph Ward left Oakland in August to manage the San Diego County Office of Education.

Sunday: This from OUSD’s public information officer: “Dr. Statham is getting the same salary as Randy Ward got. Ward’s salary was the same as the last superintendent’s salary, which was set by the board.”
