The two finalists to be Springfield’s next school superintendent will have a very busy day Wednesday.
Jennifer Gill and Michael Popp will each take part in a community forum Wednesday evening, starting at 5:30pm at Grant Middle School. At that event, they will answer questions submitted in writing by members of the audience. Both contenders will also meet with a panel of district employees… and go through a final interview with the school board.
Board member Scott McFarland says the board could make a final decision as early as Wednesday night, after those final interviews are concluded… but the selection won’t be announced until a contract is negotiated.
Gill and Popp will also appear live Wednesday morning in separate interviews on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show.”
