Salinas City Elementary Appoints New Superintendent

The Salinas City Elementary School District will welcome a new superintendent next month. Rebeca Andrade was appointed to the role June 8. She was one of 27 candidates vying to replace outgoing Superintendent Martha Martínez.

“Salinas City Elementary School District is home to one of the largest agricultural enterprises in our state that serves a community of families with immense cultural wealth, and I am honored to have been chosen as the superintendent,” Andrade said in a statement. “I am looking forward to listening and responding to the voices of students, staff, families and community as we collaboratively re-imagine education.”

Andrade was born in Mexico and moved to the U.S. when she was 14. She most recently worked for the Glendale Unified School District as a principal and as an early education director for the district. She holds a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Southern California.
