Jesse Ortiz has what it takes

By
From page A6 | May 14, 2014 |

Jesse Ortiz is the most qualified candidate to be the next Yolo County superintendent of schools. The job is two-fold, superintending the Yolo County Office of Education and superintending the schools in the county.

The first requires diverse leadership and management experiences, skills and knowledge. The latter requires diplomacy and vision, as well as familiarity and experience with the diverse school districts and communities of Yolo County. Ortiz is the most qualified for both.

Ortiz’s three decades of educational experiences in kindergarten to college educational leadership has prepared him for the responsibility of being the Yolo County superintendent of schools. The county superintendent oversees a vast array of programs and services that require a perspective and understanding of the “forest and the trees.” The county superintendent orchestrates the quantity and quality of these services. Jesse is that visionary leader.

Jesse Ortiz has years of experience as an elected school board member and currently serves on the Yolo County Board of Education. This involvement gives him insights into the relationships between and among the county school districts and YCOE. He has worked closely with district superintendents, staff and board members as well as served on various community boards and committees representing schools in Yolo County. Ortiz is that collaborate countywide leader.

Jesse Ortiz strongly believes that public education is the “equalizer.” He has worked many years in our communities, advocating for quality services for children and families, especially those with special needs. As experienced Yolo County superintendents, we encourage you to elect Jesse Ortiz as the next Yolo County superintendent of schools.
