Centreville Public Schools Board of Education has started the process of a short-term solution to its impending superintendent’s vacancy.
During a special meeting Monday, board members agreed on a plan to secure an interim superintendent. Current superintendent Stephanie Lemmer has accepted the job of superintendent at Pennfield Schools in Battle Creek and will be leaving Centreville before the end of the month.
Meanwhile, board members also concurred that a permanent replacement for Lemmer will be an additional matter to address as the end of the current school year approaches.
The higher priority at the moment, though, appears to be landing a chief to oversee the 840-student district through the balance of the academic year.
Board president Jeff Troyer said Lemmer has recommended the names of a few potential interim superintendents.
Troyer said Jan. 17 could be a potential date for a special meeting in which prospective short-term superintendents are interviewed.
