Should the board offer Dixon a two-year contract? Cast your vote

School Board member Jason McCarthy is planning to make a motion tonight to offer Interim Superintendent Amber Dixon a two-year contract.

DixonHe says Dixon is doing a good job, and that the district would benefit from some stability in City Hall.

It's no coincidence that the board is scheduled to meet Saturday to interview the four consultants in the running to conduct the superintendent search. McCarthy says the board should act now and save itself the time and money of a superintendent search.

Sharon Belton Cottman and others say the board needs to follow through with what it decided months ago it would do: Conduct a national search to find the best candidate. If, once the search has been done, Dixon comes out on top, at that point, the board can offer her a contract, they say.

What do you think?
