Why can’t we promote the assistant superintendent?
Just read in the Sheridan Press today that they are looking out-of-state for a superintendent of schools.
I am very sure they have been paying an assistant for years a very good salary. Will someone please tell me why they almost every time look somewhere else instead of promoting the assistant?
It seems to me after four, five or more years, the assistant should be able to take over the job. If not then the taxpayer has paid a lot of money for someone who is not qualified. To me, an assistant superintendent is someone who can step in and be “the superintendent” when the time comes, sort of a “vice president.” Please let someone answer, maybe a board of education member.
