The Springfield School Board has a lot of decisions to make as it considers options for its forthcoming search for a new superintendent.
The school board is debating whether to conduct the search on its own, or to hire an outside company. A private firm and the Illinois Association of School Boards both made presentations to board members Monday night. Discussion centered on cost estimates, the timeline for a possible search, and how much of the search process should be conducted in public view.
The board could act as early as Monday, but board president Chuck Flamini thinks it could take longer to sort through the variables.
