Ann Arbor Board of Education

Officials in the Ann Arbor Public Schools are hoping to quickly work out a contract with the Board of Education's choice for district Superintendent. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the School Board last Friday, voted unanimously to offer the job to Brian Osborne. Osborne is currently Superintendent of New Jersey's South Orange and Maplewood School District. 

Brian Osborne's current contract in New Jersey mandates a 90-day notification prior to departure. If a contract is agreed upon, it could mean three months before he can start in Ann Arbor.

The Ann Arbor School District is turning to the head of its Human Resources and Legal Services 

Departments to lead the district for the next few months. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the Board of Education last night named Dave Comsa to serve as Interim Superintendent.
