SEATTLE -- The Seattle School Board is asking Anaheim School Superintendent Jose Banda to lead the Seattle school district.
The district says Board President Michael DeBell contacted Banda Sunday night, and he expressed his willingness to take the job.
The Seattle School Board is expected to name Banda in a vote Wednesday and to vote May 16 on a contract starting July 1.
He would replace Maria Goodloe-Johnson who was ousted last year in a financial scandal.
Two other superintendents who interviewed withdrew: Steven Enoch of San Ramon Valley, near San Francisco, and Sandra Husk of Salem-Keizer, Ore.
Banda has been superintendent the past four years at the Anaheim district, which has 20,000 students.
The Seattle district is the largest in Washington with more than 47000 students.
