The new unified Ypsilanti and Willow Run school district is expected to hire nine principals, and six of those jobs have now been filled by internal candidates from both districts.
Nearly two dozen internal candidates applied for the jobs, and some may find other positions with Ypsilanti Community Schools.
Washtenaw Intermediate School District Superintendent Scott Menzel says there are three principal positions yet to fill, and those will likely go to external candidates.
Interviews are underway for internal candidates who applied for teacher positions, and hiring decisions should be made in early May. Support staff jobs will be posted this month, with interviews taking place as early as the last week in April.
