Even as his current school district prepares for the possibility of millions of dollars in budget cuts that he recommended, Springfield School Superintendent Walter Milton may be on the brink of leaving for a new town.
Milton is one of two finalists for the top schools job in Madison, Wisconsin.
He and a top official of the Chicago Public Schools will appear at a community forum in Madison later this week before a final decision is made.
More than 200 people asked to be considered for the Madison job, and 65 candidates were screened before the field was narrowed to the final two.
A decision is expected within days.
