Monument School District board members are on the search for a new interim superintendent.
The board met Monday to discuss options to replace interim superintendent Ron Frieh, who came from Springfield and left a few weeks after the start of the school year.
Frieh’s resignation was accepted by the school board Sept. 25. Board vice chairwoman Maria Thomas said the job has been posted, and they hope to find a qualified candidate.
They are also considering another avenue to fill the position.
“We’re going to reach out to our local schools and see about sharing a superintendent for now,” she said, to possibly fill in for the rest of the year. “We’re playing it by ear.”
Thomas had no comment as to why Frieh suddenly resigned.
The district’s regular school board meeting is still set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, in Monument.
Monument School had 47 K-12 students enrolled at the start of the school year.
