Superintendent Craig Goldman resigned from the Mountain View Whisman School District at the end of December, and was replaced by Interim Superintendent Kevin Skelly.

The Mountain View Whisman School District took a different approach, hiring a national search firm instead of hiring in-house like they did with Goldman. When former Superintendent Maurice Ghysels stepped down, Goldman was selected by Ghysels as the likely successor.
Reporting out from a closed session meeting at the time, the board announced that they gave "full support" for Goldman to take over as superintendent, and cited the decision as a cheaper option than hiring a consultant. The decision was criticized by a local chapter of the California Teachers Association for not being an inclusive process.
Board president Chris Chiang said it's generally good to have a competitive process, and it wasn't necessarily a bad thing they identified an in-house candidate in Goldman early on.

Craig Goldman, who steps down midcontract Dec. 31 as superintendent of the Mountain View Whisman School District, says that resigning was his idea.

While it was clear in the November announcement of Goldman's departure that the district was eager for a change, the circumstances were murky. Neither Goldman nor the board leadership at the time commented publicly, aside from an emailed statement, and they have agreed not to disparage each other.
It appears Goldman read the writing on the wall and proposed he step aside.
"It was clear that the board needed a superintendent it could rally around," Goldman said. Three of the five trustees were elected on a platform of change, he noted. During rancorous negotiations with the teachers union, Goldman got into a spat over a cartoon depicting him in a Napoleon hat, then went public with his anger and demands for an apology. Teachers complained that he chastised them and treated them disrespectfully.
Goldman said board members were surprised at his proposal and took time to discuss it.
So why then did the board offer a year's pay as severance, usually a carrot dangled to entice a resignation or to fulfill a payout required by contracts?
"My leaving was for the good of the organization, but at a personal cost," Goldman said.
Goldman, he said, "says what needs to be said."
PTA leader Sara Jenez said Goldman possessed "integrity, decency, thoughtfulness, intelligence and wit" -- quite a different leader than the one portrayed by protesting teachers.
"I believe Craig was an excellent superintendent and is a good man," Wheeler said.
