Rochester Schools Board Interview Sole Superintendent Candidate
David Richards, superintendent of Fraser Public Schools, withdrew his name without reason from consideration for the Rochester Community Schools superintendent position.
Rochester Board of Education members interviewed Robert Shaner Wednesday evening and tonight he will learn whether or not he will be given the district's top job.
Shaner, director of instruction and technology at Warren Consolidated Schools, is now the only candidate for the Rochester Community Schools superintendent position.
The other candidate, David Richards, superintendent of Fraser Public Schools, withdrew his name Wednesday from consideration for the position, according to Debra Hartman, Rochester Schools communications director.
Rochester Board of Education members picked Richards and Shaner as the finalists for the position two weeks ago. The search has been under way to find a replacement for former Superintendent Fred Clarke, who resigned in September.
Board members will vote 7 p.m. at the Administration Building, 501 West University Drive, on whether to enter into contract negotiations with Shaner. The meeting is open to the public.
