Claremont Unified Superintendent Resigns After One Year

Jeff Wilson’s tenure as superintendent of the Claremont Unified School District is turning out to be short-lived. Wilson has resigned effective July 1, meaning he will step down one year after signing a four-year contract with the district. Wilson cited “unforeseen circumstances.”

Details of a severance agreement were not available, despite inquiries from the Claremont Courier.

“There are many moving parts in the current situation,” Board of Education President Steven Llanusa said. “Once all motions have been finalized, I’ll be more than happy to communicate the details. Unfortunately with only one board meeting in late April due to spring break, some things are happening more slowly than any of us would prefer.”

In an email, Wilson thanked the Claremont community “for their kindness and support during a very difficult school year filled with pandemic health issues and political polarization, learning loss recovery, a natural disaster, instructional pivots, and significant personnel shortages, just to name a few of the issues.”
