Carlsbad Names Interim Schools Leader

Carlsbad Municipal School has named an interim superintendent after the resignation of Dr. Greg Rodriguez. Deputy Superintendent LaVern Shan has been appointed to the top position after a unanimous vote by the school board Tuesday. Rodriguez said the time was right for him to step aside. He said he felt the Carlsbad district was moving in the right direction and thinks Shan is the best person to continue that trend. Rodriguez had been superintendent in Calrsbad for about two years. Rodriguez explained that the reason for his resignation was because he had accepted a new position in the state of Connecticut.
