The next superintendent of Springfield public schools may start off at a disadvantage… because of the management structure of the district. That warning comes from school board president Chuck Flamini, a former district administrator.
Flamini says there is no longer an assistant or deputy superintendent who serves as a clear second-in-command. And he says that’s a problem because the job is just too big for one person alone at the top.
But Flamini says he won’t look at adding another layer of administration until the budget picture stabilizes.
