Supt. Steve Collier to retire; 9 candidates for open BOE seat

We just confirmed with NCS Treasurer Trevor Grummere that Superintendent Steve Collier announced his retirement, effective 12/31/09, at last night’s Board of Education meeting. Also announced was the retirement of Bob Schnur, Allison Elementary’s principal.

Mr. Gummere provided us the following list of 9 community members who have applied for the BOE seat vacated by Rick Guy. Based on the resumes and cover letters these candidates submitted, the board will select which individuals they will interview in Executive Session at a special meeting scheduled next Tuesday, February 24 at 5:30 p.m. We are pleased to see so many Norwoodians willing to serve our school district.

10:10 a.m. Addendum: The BOE did not vote yesterday on a letter of understanding between the school district and Xavier University regarding the proposed intergenerational school at Allison Elementary. The letter did not appear on the agenda. We understand the board is going to take more time to consider the proposal.
