COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio school board won't name an interim or permanent state superintendent until it conducts a thorough national search.
The 19-member Ohio Board of Education voted unanimously Monday to have its executive committee interview search firms and bring a recommendation to the board. It would be the state's second such search in 16 months.
The vote followed a two-hour executive session on replacement of former Superintendent Stan Heffner.
Heffner resigned Aug. 4 after a state watchdog's investigation that found potential wrongful acts related to his conduct with a Texas-based private testing firm. He had been leading the department since May 2011, when Deborah Delisle (deh-LYL') left the job under pressure from Gov. John Kasich.
Monday's vote left Acting Superintendent Michael Sawyers in charge of the Ohio Department of Education.
