It was a unanimous vote, but it’s pretty clear that there was no joy at last night’s Kelso School Board meeting, as they formally accepted the resignation of Superintendent Rob MacGregor, to be effective June 30th. MacGregor says that this was an extremely difficult decision; he also says that the people in and around Kelso Schools are the best you can find…macgregor…MacGregor says that he had no intention of doing a “three years and gone” thing, but his personal and family situation requires that he move closer to Seattle. He says that three years isn’t nearly enough time to accomplish all that he wanted to, but he also says that a lot of extremely driven people have done a lot of great work while he has been here. School Board President Bob Lucas says that they’re still trying to figure out what the next steps should be, seeing as they’re a bit behind the curve as far as the timing in finding and hiring a new Superintendent. Lucas says that they’ll be meeting with some consultants this week, to try and get a handle on the potential pool of candidates available, and will soon be making a decision on whether to appoint an interim Superintendent, or if they’ll pursue a permanent replacement. The issue will be discussed at the next Kelso School Board meeting.
