Portage School Trustees Have To Start Again In Superintendent Search


PORTAGE, MI (WKZO) -- Portage School Trustees will meet at a time to be announced to figure out where to take their on again off again, troubled search for a new Superintendent now that their best and only candidate has withdrawn.

Interim Supt. Rob Olsen says usually it means starting over, which means consulting with their executive headhunting firm.    

He says he’s not sure if they would want to review the stack of applicants they already have, but they might.

One item the board may need to address is extending Olsen’s interim contract, which expires at the end of this school year, just a few months off.  Dr. Greg Gray, the Superintendent of Brighton Schools withdrew his name Monday after some soul-searching, discussions with colleagues and particularly his family.
