FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Officials with Fort Wayne Community Schools will soon start the process of finding a new superintendent.
Wendy Robinson says she won’t seek an extension when her contract expires in June of next year, so the school board will be meeting this week to get the ball rolling with a discussion on the search for her replacement.
The Journal Gazette reports no votes will be taken, but the board will talk about a “rough timeline” on when they want to find the replacement, as well as the pros and cons of using a national search firm.
Robinson has been superintendent since 2003. She was named Superintendent of the Year by the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents two years ago.
I hope the board can think outside their box on this one. From what I have seen, they get their information thru Supt. Robinson, PhD, and approve her recommendations. Jehl may recognize something she disapproves of but she doesn’t fight for it. If they have Learning Forward do the search you know Robinson is still in control, or being controlled, I’m not sure.
