Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Rochester School Board holds its second meeting of the week today with the main item on the agenda being the selection of an interim superintendent.

Elected officials are expected to offer the job to one of the three finalists who were interviewed on Tuesday. Dr. Christina Bemboom (Senior Director of Student Support Services at the Eden Prairie Schools), Dr. Kent Pekel (President and CEO of Search Institute), and Dr. John Thein (Director of Finance for Stillwater Area Public Schools) are vying to temporarily replace Rochester Public Schools Superintendent Michael Munoz when he steps down at the end of June.

If the School Board makes a decision this evening, negotiations on an employment contract will begin almost immediately. It’s hoped that a contract proposal can be presented to the school board for approval at its meeting next Tuesday. The contract would be for one year to allow the School Board to conduct a nationwide search for a more permanent Superintendent.
