Residents of Saganaw can meet each of three finalists for Saginaw School District superintendent following public interviews, including Dr. Steve Price.

 
On Jan. 12, Steve Price, 54, will answer questions from school board members. Price worked for seven years as superintendent of the Middletown Local Schools before being forced to leave that job earlier this year.
 
The board seeks a successor to Thomas N. Barris, who retires in June.

For Saginaw's sake, I hope they don't look "too hard" in his direction. Don't these towns who are interviewing potential supers ever send someone to talk to the citizens about a candidates performance while there? You know the local newspaper nor the school board either won't or legally can't tell the truth about the performance, but the real truth lies in the comments from the parents of the kids in the district where these candidates came from. Can't rely on resumes, accomplishments nor "positive comments" coming from authorities alone to get the total picture of what you would be getting. Same for us here in Midd.

Vet,
LOL...that's a good one!!!
 
I fear that  other boards are much like our public officials.  Can you imagine them talking to citizens about ANYTHING???  They just "are not set up for that"!!!  Besides, they already know EVERYTHING.  What would they possibly need to talk to citizens about???
 
PS:  People who THINK they know everything are especially irritating to those of us who actually DO!!! Wink LOL LOL

School boards don't do back ground checks,well unless of course your a lowly janitor trying to eck out a living and feed your children,then your put through an FBI,CIA, and local criminal investigative background check.
 
But for Super's & teachers who have sex with students and earn a good living no checks are necessary. Including a check on prior employment.
 
It would be "demeaning" to run a check on a Super or teacher !

Randy,I will be there hoping the board does not make a terrible decision. The district needs to heal and under a qualified leader. We need discipline, and firmness that we have not had for years. It is hard to belieeve that these are the tope 3 from a nationwide search, Martin was a failure in Mansfield, and judging by the number of Mansfield folks commenting in the MJ blog, it must be true. They all can't ne making that stuff. Sommers, while a good administrator in a tech sshool, may have shortcomings in a public school. Most students at a tech school want to be there. While in publi school it is the direct opposite. He has no experience with atheletic programs, fine art programs and dealing with levies. I don't see him as good fit, nice man, not a good fit, a double dipper. Rasmuesan (sp?) looks to be the better fit. Wichita schools is a lot like us only bigger. He has dealt with the poverty issue, 70% of students on free and reduced lunches, discipline issues, and test scores and their are improving. He is an ambitious educator and may be the very breath of fresh air this district needs.

Frederick C. Clarke, one of three finalists seeking the job of Saginaw School District superintendent, appeared at 7 p.m. Thursday for an interview by the Board of Education.

Clarke, 43, is superintendent of the Albion School District in Calhoun County. Following his interview at the district Administration Building, 550 Millard, community members may greet him during a 30-minute social time.

The school board interviewed two other finalists -- Carlton D. Jenkins and Steve Price -- earlier this week. Jenkins, 44, is executive director of secondary and charter schools for the Beloit (Wis.) Public Schools. Price, 54, worked for seven years as superintendent of the Middletown (Ohio) Public Schools before leaving that job earlier this year.

Board members plan to choose their new superintendent at their Jan. 26 meeting at 5:30 p.m.

They are all idiot bureaucrats so what difference does it make WHO they pick. Until they LOOK outside of Education for a Leader, MCS won't have one.
