Board could hire interim superintendent

The Taft Union High School District Board will hold a special meeting Thursday morning that could result in the hiring of an interim superintendent.

The district started the search last month when Dr. Mark Richardson announced his resignation to become superintendent of the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District effective Sept. 12.

Thursday 's meeting will start at 9 a.m. with the board scheduled to go into closed session a short time later.

After the closed session the board will come back into open session for discussion and possible action.

The agenda also includes an item for a contract if the board does hire an interim superintendent.
