The Grand Forks school board will enlist the services of a search firm to help find a new superintendent. Current administrator Larry Nybladh plans to retire at the end of the school year. The board agreed last night to establish a panel to review the search firm candidates - and select a company moving forward. Board President Doug Carpenter says it’s important to get the process going because several other districts in the region will be hiring as well.
Six firms are vying for the job ranging in price from 12-thousand-300 dollars to 23-thousand – plus expenses. Carpenter says he knows the cost factor will come up - but it's an important decision.
The board also approved the 2017-18 budget. It holds the mill levy steady but raises property taxes to the tune of 2.86 percent. The spending plan also projects deficit spending of some two-million dollars.
