TRANSFER, Pa. -- Reynolds School Board expects to have a new superintendent picked before the end of the month.
The board continues to interview and narrow the list of candidates for the job, said Ralph Jones, board president, noting the board had another executive session on the issue Wednesday.
He said the search committee expects to have a name to present to the board at its regular meeting Wednesday.
Dr. Charles M. Cagno, 59, who was given a four-year contract when he was hired July 6, 1999, notified the school board in March of his intent to retire effective June 30.
The school board had handed him a five-day suspension without pay in October after a state auditor general's investigation showed he had improperly taken school property and used school vehicles for personal business, but Cagno didn't cite that or any other reason for his early retirement.
The school board enlisted the assistance of Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV in its search for a successor.
The unit provides educational and other services to public school districts in Mercer, Lawrence and Butler counties and isn't charging for its help in the search.
