Ypsilanti, MI – The Ypsilanti Board of Education has opted to allow Superintendent David Zuhlke's contract to automatically be extended. Zuhlke's contract with the district remains at four years as the board voted four to two last night against a motion aimed at not extending his contract.
Trustee Diane Kerr called the vote a good decision, based on Zuhlke's performance. Trustee Floyd Brumfield said he preferred a three-year contract, saying it would make better business sense.
Both Brumfield and Trustee Tom Reiber voted in favor of the motion to not extend the superintendent's contract.
