A vote on a contract for Springfield’s next school superintendent has been postponed temporarily.
The school board had planned to approve that deal with Jennifer Gill at Monday’s meeting… but they say because of the holidays, they’ve been unable to complete all of the details.
However, board members and Gill say there are no unexpected snags, and they expect to have that final vote in two weeks. In the meantime, former superintendent Bob Hill is now officially taking over on an interim basis until Gill can start work.
Hill replaces another interim superintendent, Bob Leming, who had to step aside or risk affecting his pension.
