Superintendent Update

Today was the day Rockford Superintendent Dr. Dennis Thompson had planned to interview for the Superintendent spot with the Collier County School District in Naples, Florida but concerns from two board members in Florida pushed the visit to August 13Th.

The two who asked for more time have learned the board could legally hire Thompson without interviewing any other applicants. Thompson's fans on the Collier County Board say they'd rather not waste the money on a national search, if a qualified replacement has already been found.

The Rockford School Board has scheduled a meeting for tomorrow night at 6 to discuss its options should Thompson accept a position in Florida.
