Metro school board moves director search deadline

Davidson County The Metro school board Tuesday voted to extend the application window for companies that want to help the district find a new director of schools. The deadline for applications was Tuesday, but the board extended the window to March 28 in hopes of getting more firms to choose from. Six firms submitted applications, four national and two local, by the old deadline. Board members didn't want to deter any firms from applying because of the one-week application window. Members also voted to soften the July 1 goal to sign a contract with a new director of schools. — JAIME SARRIO
