For nearly seven years, Superintendent Xavier Botana wrote a monthly “Superintendent’s Notebook” column in The Forecaster newspaper. He stepped down mid-January, so the January column is his last one for the paper. Going forward, Interim Co-Superintendents Melea Nalli and Aaron Townsend will write the monthly column until a superintendent is hired on a permanent basis by this June.
