Juneau will be responsible for closing large achievement gaps and coping with a significant budget shortfall. But until that happens, Juneau told the public she is prepared to have tough conversations about where to put limited resources.

The Seattle Times reported that Juneau will be the school district’s fifth superintendent in 10 years and is expected to earn around $300,000.
