Board expected to offer a superintendent contract after tonight's meeting

The Joplin R-8 Board of Education will continue discussions on the hiring of a superintendent in a closed meeting that was scheduled to begin a few moments in the superintendent's conference room at the Memorial Education Building.

The board interviewed Harrison, Arkansas superintendent Mendy Moss and former Bartlesville, Oklahoma and Neosho superintendent Gary Quinn.

The board is expected to decide tonight on which candidate will be offered a contract. The announcement of the new superintendent will be made at the 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 29, board meeting at the Memorial Education Building.

If the board is thinking they'll pass a bond, they're crazy.

The new super is going to have to deal with a lot of inexperienced teachers and lots of people who are tired of being treated like dirt.
