The Springfield School Board has unanimously approved hiring former superintendent Bob Hill to return to the top job, temporarily.
Hill will be paid $650 a day for up to 100 days, starting in January.
He says he will simply maintain day-to-day operations until newly-hired superintendent Jennifer Gill can start.
There is still no firm date for Gill to take over the job.
School board president Chuck Flamini says it could be a few weeks… but says it’s more likely that Gill will start at the beginning of the next school year in July.
