HOUSTON (AP) - A California educator has been named sole finalist to lead the largest public school system in Texas.

Houston Independent School District trustees on Wednesday selected Richard Carranza for superintendent, pending a 21-day waiting period before a final board vote.

Carranza is currently superintendent of the 53,000-student San Francisco Unified School District.

Carranza would replace Terry Grier, who in February retired as superintendent of the HISD, which has about 215,000 students. A deputy superintendent and district chief financial officer, Ken Huewitt, has served as interim superintendent in Houston.
