Bill Huyett, Lodi Unified School District's former superintendent, has announced he is retiring from education after 38 years. At the end of June, he will leave the Berkeley Unified School District, where he has worked for four years.
"I was drawn to Berkeley because I saw an opportunity to work on the achievement gap," he said in a prepared statement. "With a committed board, dedicated staff (and) an involved community ... much has been accomplished in the past four years. Now I'm ready to pass the torch so I can spend more time with my wife and family."
