Hit the ground running.
Wood County's new superintendent promised it, and he's trying to make good on that promise.
John Flint is interviewing candidates next week for the newly-created deputy superintendent's post.
That's part of a reorganization plan the board narrowly approved Monday.
He says it's more than just a "second in command" job.
"That person will have to have a superintendent's certificate. They will also have to have experience in elementary, secondary and middle schools. So it's kind of a complex position," Flint says.
He emphasizes the new post is not an added position, simply a re-definition of the duties of the assistant superintendent of human resources.
Flint, along with a board of education featuring two new members, takes office July 1.
