Neustadt has experience for the job

By
From page A6 | April 24, 2014 |

I have had the good fortune to work in the public schools for 32 years, primarily as a school administrator. Most recently I served as the director of student services for the Davis school district and then as the director of special education for the Yolo County Office of Education until my recent retirement. It is from this experience that I support Sam Neustadt in the upcoming election for the Yolo County superintendent of schools.

The county office operates programs throughout Yolo County. These include Head Start preschool services and alternative education programs for students who have either been expelled from a local district, incarcerated at Juvenile Hall or have not been successful in district programs.

The largest programs are in the area of special education. The county offers programs for students with disabilities who are challenging to serve through district programs due to the highly specialized services needed by these students. These programs support students from infant through adult who are deaf, blind, autistic, emotionally disturbed, developmentally delayed, medically fragile or physically handicapped. These services are provided through special day class programs and itinerant services throughout Yolo County.

The Yolo County superintendent of schools oversees these programs and has many other responsibilities, such as fiscal oversight of the districts. The election in June has only one candidate with the background and experience for this position. Sam Neustadt has been a teacher, school principal, assistant superintendent and a leader for years within the K-12 school system. He is a longtime resident of Yolo County and currently administers these same special education programs for the Solano County Office of Education.

It is critical that the superintendent of schools have a deep understanding of the complex issues associated with these programs. I urge the voters of Yolo County to learn more about Sam through his website at www.samneustadt.com and to vote for him on June 3.
