The superintendent of schools of Seattle is in the running to be the next superintendent of schools in Sacramento.

The Sac City Unified School District Board of Education will visit Seattle next week to meet with Seattle Public Schools Superintendent José L. Banda, who has been selected by trustees as the finalist for the top post in Sacramento.

He's a veteran administrator with 34 years of experience in public education, including three decades in California schools.

The Sacramento School District has been without a permanent superintendent since December, following the resignation of former superintendent Jonathan Raymond.
