AAPS Special Meeting Time Changed

Review of RFP for superintendent search firm tonight, Aug. 23

An Ann Arbor Public Schools special board meeting previously scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 24 has been changed to tonight, Monday, Aug. 23, at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will take place at the Balas administration building main conference room, 2555 S. State St.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss a draft of a request for proposals (RFP) for search firms to assist with the hiring of a new superintendent to replace Todd Roberts, who recently announced his resignation. In November, Roberts is moving back to his hometown of Durham, N.C. to become chancellor of the North Carolina School for Science and Math.

An email announcing the meeting time change was not sent to an AAPS distribution list until 8 a.m. Monday morning. Amy Osinski, executive secretary to the board, told The Chronicle in a phone interview that she posted the time change on the AAPS website yesterday evening – Sunday, Aug. 22.

Michigan’s Open Meetings Act requires public notice of special meetings at least 18 hours before the meeting.
