Portage Public School Trustees poised to pick a new Superintendent


PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Former Portage Superintendent Ric Perry has struck out in arbitration.He was hoping to prove he was wrongfully terminated and deserved a larger severance than he received, after he was accused of having an affair with his Human Resources Director and forced to resign, “under protest’.

Interim Supt. Rob Olson says they are just glad to put it behind them.

School trustees are poised to meet tomorrow afternoon and could pick their next Superintendent.The two finalists for the vacant Superintendent’s job in Portage Public Schools were back in town for their second and final public interviews last evening and trustees will huddle Friday with the stated goal of narrowing the field to one.

Only the Trustees know the combination of qualities they are seeking in the next Superintendent, and they will make that decision at a special meeting in the Administration Building at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon.
