Central Unified Superintendent Resigns

The head of Fresno’s Central Unified School District resigned on Tuesday, two months after he was arrested for suspected domestic violence. His departure comes despite an announcement from the Madera County District Attorney that she will not be filing charges for lack of evidence. 

Superintendent Andrew Alvarado has been on paid administrative leave since June. Ketti Davis has been leading the district on an interim basis.

“The board would like to thank Mr. Alvarado for his service to the district," Central Unified Board of Trustees President Yesenia Carrillo said. "As superintendent, Alvarado assisted the district in successfully navigating operations through global pandemic by providing resources to district children and community."
