Board continues superintendent search discussion Monday night

The Ann Arbor Board of Education will meet tonight, Aug. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Balas Administration Building, 2555 S. State St., when board members are scheduled to continue their discussion regarding the departure of Superintendent Todd Roberts and their process to replace him.

The meeting will take place in the main conference room. All school board meetings are open to the public.

The board is expected to consider a draft Request for Proposals for firms to assist the board as it moves forward with the search for a new superintendent. Once draft language for the RFP is approved, the board will consider accepting proposals from qualified firms.

Roberts announced on Aug. 13 that he would resign his post in Ann Arbor, leaving the district this fall for a new executive education job in North Carolina. Roberts said he is leaving to be closer to family there. He has served in the superintendent’s post for four years and has lived in the community for 12 years.

Roberts has pledged to help through the transition process and is expected to remain at the district into November.
