Beverly Hills Unified School District Superintendent Gary Woods is today further from the classroom than he has ever been in his long and prestigious career. Indeed, the BHUSD leader estimated that just 20 percent of his time goes to school oversight. Woods said he spends just as much time on legal issues, splitting the remainder of his time between facilities and staff issues.
Despite the fact that Woods, who is just beginning his fourth year as superintendent, is not spending the bulk of his time doing what he loves, he is completely committed to remaining with the BHUSD through the length of his current contract which lasts until 2018.
In anticipation of the new school year, The Courier visited Woods in his district office, during which time he shared how he plans to inspire, shape and better Beverly Hills students.
