The Eastern Pulaski School Board has scheduled a special meeting to seek action on entering into a contract for the new superintendent of schools. That meeting is set for Tuesday, Aug. 20.
The board this week held a public hearing on the new superintendent’s contract. A new law passed requires that the public have a say in the proposed contract. Hearing no comments from the public or the board during the public hearing, the board noted that a meeting to approve that contract would be scheduled seven days after the public hearing, which is state statute.
The name of the superintendent has not been released. The board will approve a recommendation for a new superintendent during Tuesday’s meeting which is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. ET in the Distance Learning Lab.
