Mendon and Centreville extend agreement for shared superintendent

The fate of a contract for shared superintendent services with Centreville Public Schools was decided Tuesday, when members of the Mendon Community Schools Board of Education extended the agreement through the 2015-16 academic year.
Whether Rob Kuhlman will continue to serve in that capacity, however, won’t be decided until March.
Board members with Centreville Public Schools last fall approved a one-year renewal of the shared-services position of superintendent and furthermore endorsed a personal contract to keep Kuhlman in that capacity through the 2015-16 school year.
In response to concerns raised Tuesday by an audience member who said the shared-services agreement with Centreville appears to be working well and is saving both districts money, Mendon board president Jim Fassett said the issue will be looked at during the board’s March meeting.
Kuhlman, 58, is in his fifth year as superintendent of the two districts.
Mendon board members Keith Heitkamp and Chris Ames on Tuesday voted against the motion to continue the shared-services contract for superintendent.
