Montello Board hires Al Rosenthal as interim superintendent

In a special meeting held June 4th, the Montello School Board hired Alan Rosenthal as interim superintendent and lead searcher to find a replacement for Jeff Holmes, who resigned to take a new position with the Germantown School District.

The school board also decided to create a committee that will come up with profile preferences for the new superintendent, designed to give the school board and Rosenthal guidance when going through the selection process.

The committee will have a maximum of 11 members, including representatives from the three charter school governance council plus some board members, administrators and a community member.

The board will accept applications until June 30th and will begin interviewing applicants shortly thereafter, but there will be no deadline for choosing a replacement in order to make the process thoughtful and thorough. If no candidate is found to be acceptable, the posting will be reopened.
