Marion BOE begins process to hire superintendent, principal

July 5, 2018

The process is starting to unfold with the Marion School District in finding a new elementary principal and superintendent.
School board president Monica Cox confirmed earlier this week that Greg Mikulich is currently doing his duties as interim superintendent.

Mikulich took over when Mort Meier retired last month.

“We are working with Michigan Leadership Institute to find qualified applicants,” Cox said.

She added the goal is to have a new superintendent in place by the start of the school year. The exact process hasn’t been exactly determined.

“We’re looking for a part-time superintendent and then we’re looking for a full-time (elementary) school principal. We’re currently doing an internal posting to see if we have any qualified and interested persons on staff.”

Meier had filled both positions.

Meier had been with the district five years prior to announcing his retirement. The board and Meier had been working through allegations by the Office of Retirement Services that said both he and secretary Diana Salisbury owe $145,000 in pension money. They have appealed the charges. The ORS maintains Meier was accepting a regular paycheck and pension at the same time.
The next board meeting is on Tuesday, July 10, at 6 p.m.
