Lucia Mar superintendent to file resignation letter today

Lucia Mar Superintendent Deborah Flores will file her resignation letter today following a unanimous vote by the Gilroy school board Thursday night to hire her there.

Flores – who has led the county’s largest school district for the last three years – is required by contract to give 60 days notice, but the school board will ultimately decide how much longer she stays.

Flores began looking for another job in February, replying to a search firm that had previously tried to recruit her, she said. Flores will earn $187,500 plus benefits, an almost $23,000 raise over the $164,560 she made with Lucia Mar.
