    Sorrera leaving OUSD

    COMMUNITY UPDATE
    Orange Unified Assistant Superintendent Joe  Sorrera to leave Orange Unified for new position at Dublin Unified School District


    Orange Net News has confirmed that Orange Unified School District  Assistant Superintendent of  Business Services Claudio "Joe" Sorrera has accepted a new position as the  Assistant Superintendent of  Business Services with the Dublin Unified School District.  The Dublin Unified School Board voted to approve his appointment this week on Tuesday May 23, 2017.


    Dublin Unified is an 8,000 student district in Alameda County in the East Bay area of Northern California.

    Sorrera's  departure, which has not been announced by Orange Unified yet, comes less than a month after Orange Unified Superintendent Michael Christensen announced his departure.  The departure of both  Christensen and Sorrera leaves a major  financial leadership vacuum for Orange Unified which under the financial leadership of both Christensen and Sorrera had become a model of financial stability across the state, even through the Great Recession. 

    In addition to the financial aspect,  Sorrera was instrumental in the organizing and financing planning of  the failed Measure K and  successful Measure S.  Much of the financial and architectural  groundwork for  Measure S was completed as planning for Measure K. 

    Sorrera's departure also comes amid growing unconfirmed  community speculation on the reasons for Christensen's retirement.  Much of those whispered conversations at the OUSD District Office focus on the OUSD Trustees majority.

    Last week, that OUSD Majority rejected legal counsel advice and approved a version of the El Rancho Charter that could, according to the district's legal experts, place OUSD in financial risk and not provided required protections to students and staff.  Sources close to the El Rancho Charter administration, which is currently a "dependent" charter  with a defined attendance area, report that long-term plans are to eventually make the school a completely independent charter-thus leaving the Anaheim Hills area with no public middle school.

    Sorrera began his career as a private Certified Public Accountant.  At OUSD  he served as an account supervisor and for the last six years as the OUSD Assistant Superintendent of Business Services and Chief Business Officer. 

    Sorrera is also a member of the OUSD Bargaining Team that is currently in negotiations with its employee bargining units.
