The West Contra Costa Unified School District’s (WCCUSD) new superintendent, Dr. Kenneth Chris Hurst, has unveiled an “entry plan” outlining some of his goals for the first six months of his new role.

The plan includes a listening and learning phase through July, meeting with district stakeholders and gathering information and data. That information will be used to develop a summary report and presentation from August to October that identifies next steps for the district. The plan will be finalized in concert with the school board.

“I am ready to get to work and to get to know this community as your next Superintendent,” Hurst said. “I am excited to help lead WCCUSD through its next education chapter.”

On Monday, Hurst shared an 8-page outline of his entry plan and video as well.

He aims to host a Facebook Live session about the Entry Plan at 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 27.

“Over the next month and a half, I will be meeting with students, staff, families, and community partners through a variety of platforms and forums with the sole purpose to listen and learn as much as possible about my new family,” Hurst said, adding, “Together, we can increase educational opportunities, learning, and academic achievement for all WCCUSD students in our quest to ensure every student is prepared to participate and compete in our global society.”


  1. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice
    from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure
    where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

    Many thanks

  2. Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  4. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
    problem solved soon. Many thanks
