Advising the school board on hiring a new superintendent, I would say: Go!
When the last search was conducted, Diana Greene placed second in the running.
She subsequently was hired to be No. 2 on a new team. This team produced a disgruntled atmosphere.
Was she so far out of the "loop", not knowing that Rick Mills was leaving and a shot at the top job may be at hand? Or was she so inside that she applied to escape to the outside?
Never miss a local story.
She was vetted for the jobs that she applied for, and the boards selected who they considered more qualified candidates.
Consider her, yes, but do so with a field of candidates. Do not just hand over the reins of the team that has cut a big rut in the mud.
