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.
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.
Earlier this week, the two finalists for the position of Superintendent of Ann Arbor Public Schools toured the district, went through a second round of interviews and attended public forums to answer community questions. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, by the end of the day the school board is expected to have made its decision.
Members of the Ann Arbor Board of Education have just over 24-hours to consider whom they prefer to serve as the districts next Superintendent of Schools. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the second and last finalist last night met with the community at a public forum.
The search is almost over. Tonight, the Ann Arbor Schools community will meet with the 2nd finalist for the district's Superintendent position.
Brian Osborne currently heads up the South Orange and Maplewood School District in New Jersey. He'll be at a forum at Skyline High School at seven tonight to answer any questions the public may have for him. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the other finalist, Jeanice Swift, went through the same process on Monday night.
