Kern High School District continues search for superintendent after protest

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The state's largest high school district is currently accepting applications for a new superintendent, and this morning they asked for your help.

Kern High School District Superintendent Don Carter announced his retirement last month and Monday morning locals voiced what they would like to see from his successor.

The Kern High School District board of trustees recently voted to hire a current district employee to replace Carter.

Members of the Dolores Huerta Foundation protested the meeting earlier this morning saying that they wanted the search widened. 

"This is the time for change," said Ruth Garcia, a parent. "I would like to see you guys to the right thing and allow this superintended to be picked fin an open search that would allow the best talent."

John Teves said that the KHSD still intends to hire someone from within the district.

The new superintended will oversee more than 20 schools.
