Amphi schools’ supt is Az’s best

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

The best large-district school superintendent in Arizona is right here in Tucson.

Vicki Balentine, leader of Amphitheater Public Schools, was selected All-Arizona Superintendent of the Year for large school districts by the Arizona School Administrators Association.

Balentine started as a teacher more than three decades ago. Since then, she has been a principal, a dropout-prevention coordinator and assistant superintendent.

She has been the Amphi superintendent since 2000.

Running a school district, with its many competing demands, is a very difficult job. Balentine does it exceptionally well. We congratulate her.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
