TPS picks district leader as interim superintendent

TPS School Board

The Toledo Public School Board on Monday unanimously selected Assistant Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant as interim superintendent for the district.

The board will now begin negotiating a contract with Durant. He beat out 4 other candidates to secure the top job in TPS.

He along with Cleveland Heights University Heights superintendent Douglas Heuer were the final two candidates.

Durant will take over for outgoing Superintendent Dr. Jerome Pecko, who announced earlier this year his plan to leave the district when his contract expires this summer.

WNWO will have much more on this developing story tonight at 6pm.
