Wake Closer To Hiring Superintendent
The Wake County School Board is one step closer to hiring a new superintendent. The new leader will be faced with several challenges involving the state’s largest school district.
A new superintendent will deal with a significant budget shortfall, a federal Title VI investigation, and a review by the agency that accredits the county’s high schools. On top of that, the school district’s top administrator will also inherit a deeply divided School Board.
That Board met last night behind closed doors. They interviewed candidates earlier this month at a hotel in Raleigh.
School board chair Ron Margiotta and other members of the Republican majority on the Board had encouraged non-educators to apply. Margiotta has said he wants to hire a superintendent by January.
