Board names interim superintendent
The Hays school board unanimously chose Deputy Superintendent Carter Scherff as the interim superintendent at a special board meeting Monday. The appointment will take place once Superintendent Jeremy Lyon, who has been named the lone finalist for superintendent in the Frisco school district, officially tenders his resignation.
Scherff has worked in the district since 2003. This will be his second stint as interim superintendent. He held the position in 2009 before Lyon joined the district.
The board also solicited bids from search firms and consultants to help find superintendent candidates. It expects to choose a firm in January.
