Beiser, Redding head to November runoff in SDUSD board president race

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Unified School District board President Kevin Beiser and challenger Amy Redding are heading to a runoff in the November election.

Beiser picked up more than 68 percent of the ballots cast in Tuesday's election to Redding's 32 percent. Redding chairs the District Advisory Council for Compensatory Education, which advises the board on meeting the needs of disadvantaged students.

She said she ran because she disagreed with prior board decisions to save money by shortening the school year and increasing class sizes.

Beiser, a teacher in the Sweetwater Union High School District and former county Math Teacher of the Year, said he will concentrate on trying to avoid increasing class sizes further; protecting art, music and career vocational education; and improving graduation rates.

In the other school board seat up for election, Michael McQuary ran unopposed. McQuary replaces Scott Barnett, who declined to seek a second term.
