SSCS board selects acting superintendent



STANDISH — The Standish-Sterling Community School District board has selected Sterling Elementary School Principal Clinton Potts as the district’s acting superintendent.

The board made the decision at a special meeting held on Tuesday, May 31.

Potts will fill in as the district’s superintendent as the board begins a search for a one year, interim, replacement for current Superintendent Michael Dodge, who accepted the superintendent position at Dundee Community Schools.

The board unanimously elected Potts to the position.

Board President Dr. Leonard LeClair said the district might begin a search for a fulltime replacement next spring. He said Potts will assume the active position for a time period of three to six weeks.

“We have to have an acting superintendent to handle the day to day operations of the superintendent,” he said. “Our search will depend upon how long it takes Mr. Dodge to clear up some of his things.”

LeClair said once the board receives an official resignation from Dodge it will be able to begin a search for a new superintendent.

The board expressed its thanks to Dodge for his service.

“We (the board) would like to congratulate Mr. Dodge on his new job,” LeClair said.

Potts was unavailable for comment. Check back for further updates.
