In his announcement, Carrizosa acknowledged the short turnaround, but said he was humbled to have the opportunity to move to a “new level of educational leadership.”
“I have never left a position after such a short tenure so the unexpected timing of this change is a new experience for me,” he said in his statement. “In this short time however, I have learned what many of you know so well and that is how unique and special this community is and the vital role [Burbank Unified] plays in shaping this wonderful culture.”
He went on to say that he would be working with the Burbank Unified school board to “assure a positive transition over the next few weeks for our students, staff, and school community."
