Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown has nominated the former advocate for a group that represents school administrators in the Capitol as executive director of the California State Board of Education.

Karen Stapf Walters, a former teacher and state Senate aide, most recently served as interim executive director of the Association of California School Administrators. The former assistant executive director for governmental relations at the organization first joined ACSA as an advocate in 1999.

Stapf Walters will also advise the governor on education policy in her new role, which pays an annual salary of $175,000. The executive director appointment must be approved by a vote of the board.

She succeeds former Board of Education executive director and Brown education adviser Sue Burr, who retired at the end of 2012. The former assistant superintendent of Elk Grove Unified and state undersecretary of education was named a member of the board by Brown earlier this week.
