As I have reported here before, APS Superintendent Beverly Hall was not expected to stay on after next spring when her contract expired.
I have argued with many folks here on the blog that she should be allowed to stay on through the expiration of her contract in the spring simply for the sake of stability. Most of you disagreed, including now my own newspaper. But I have found that interim superintendents throw systems into inertia. Nothing gets done for the year while the search is under way for a new leader.
You all argued that dormancy is better than chaos.
Now, we have confirmation that Hall formally plans to step down next year. She has given official word to what has been the long-held unofficial assumption:
Channel 2 Action News is reporting that Hall notified school board members late Friday that she will not seek another contract when her current contract expires on June 30, of next year.
