Ann Arbor Superintendent Search

Perhaps the second time is the charm. After being rejected by its first choice for district Superintendent, the Ann Arbor Board of Education has offered the job to the other finalist. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, Jeanice Swift was offered the position yesterday and has agreed to enter contract negotiations.


The Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education will meet Wednesday afternoon to determine how to proceed in the search for a new district Superintendent.

As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the school board could go in a couple of different directions.

New Jersey's South Orange Maplewood Superintendent Brian Osborne has turned down Ann Arbor Public Schools offer to become superintendent. 

In a letter to the board, Osborne cited concerns over moving his family, interest in continuing work in New Jersey, and a medical condition for a family member.

The Ann Arbor School Board is expected to meet soon to discuss next steps on the process of selecting a superintendent.


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.
