After brief consideration, the Saginaw school board backed away from a plan Wednesday to elevate Assistant Superintendent Ramont Roberts to succeed Nathaniel McClain as Superintendent, at least on an interim basis. McClain is leaving by the end of June after trustees chose not to extend his contract.
Board President Rudy Patterson said there has to be a process that includes reviewing the attributes someone must bring to the Superintendent’s chair and an assessment of a candidate’s qualifications. He said trustees may hold a special meeting to discuss the situation later in May.
Roberts said he wants to talk more with trustees before deciding whether to go for the job.
