POTEAU – Poteau School Board members appear to be getting closer in their search for someone to replace retiring Superintendent Don Sjoberg.
In a special meeting Friday afternoon, the members authorized Board President Ranada Adams “to negotiate terms of employment” with a prospective candidate for the job.
Sjoberg’s retirement becomes effective at the end of this month.
The board also hired four employees during the meeting.
Donna Miller was hired for part-time reading intervention at the Upper Elementary School, Zach Stubbs for fifth- and sixth-grade athletics and physical education at Pansy Kidd Middle School, Regina Smith for high school English and Madelyn Humphries Martin as special education paraprofessional.
