The city also recently decided to spend $4 million to upgrade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) facilities in its middle and high schools.
The CCS School Board hopes to name the new superintendent by September with a start date as soon thereafter as possible and no later than January 1, 2022. Ability to be licensed as a superintendent in Virginia is required.
