The Saginaw school board said Wednesday it’s anxious to get moving on selecting a new Superintendent to replace the departing Nathaniel McClain.
A meeting earlier this week between Saginaw trustees and a representative from the Michigan Association of School Boards raised the possibility of finding a retired Superintendent with expertise in curriculum willing to step in temporarily on July First.
That person would stay until a permanent replacement for McClain could be named.
A key question still to be answered though is whether state educational officials would finance the search for a temporary leader.
Meanwhile trustees Joyce Seals and Ruth Ann Knapp have denied any involvement in a recent recall effort involving other board members.
The Saginaw County Election Commission recently rejected petition language against board members Mattie Thompson and Kim Hamilton.
The pair voted as part of a four person majority not to extend McClain’s contract beyond this school year.
McClain is scheduled to leave the district at the end of June.
