Search for Interim Bibb Supt. to End April 12

The district also called a board meeting for Monday morning. That meeting will go into a closed, executive session to discuss personnel matters, future acquisition of property and/or pending litigation.

The board may then choose to extend Griffin-Ziebart's term until an interim superintendent can be chosen. But any action based on discussion in the closed session will be voted on publicly.
