Ridder to update R-8 Board on first week on the job

Newly hired Interim Superintendent Norm Ridder will be introduced and provide an update on his first week at the job when the Joplin R-8 Board of Education meets 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Memorial Administration Building.

A major item on the agenda will be the decision on whether to pursue the Early Childhood Center project. A positive vote is expected, but the City of Joplin needs the vote in order to go ahead with its share of the funding.
