      TPS begins interviews for interim superintendent

      T he Toledo Public School board has started interviews to select an interim superintendent.

      T hree people are candidates for the job , including assistance superintendent Romules Durant, Oregon City schools superintendent Mike Zalar, and Cleveland Heights - University Heights superintendent Douglas Heuer.

      O ut of the three men , D urant is the only one currently employed by TPS with inside knowledge on what's going on in the district. But board president Brenda Hill said no one has an edge in this process, "if you're here everyday, you have more knowledge than if you're not. but, that doesn't mean that were going to determine that candidate just because they're here everyday."

      Durant was interviewed Tuesday evening after the TPS board voted to go into an executive session. Z alar and Heuer will be interviewed on Thursday starting at 5:00 pm.

      T he board says they hope to have an interim superintendent chosen before current superintendent Dr. Jerome Pecko steps down at the end of July.
