West Seneca School Board members will be checking to see if Erie 1 BOCES Superintendent Lynn M. Fusco can head up a search for a new superintendent.
"If we go through her for the superintendent search, it's free," Board Member Mary Busse said.
Board members agreed during a work session Monday that the search has to get underway as soon as possible.
School Leadership, which the board hired to perform the last search, told board members it was withdrawing from the search process. The search was put on hold in February, and the firm led the search for the interim superintendent, who was terminated two weeks ago.
Board members talked about forming a small committee of stakeholders to come up with requirements to put in the posting of the job.
Board members also agreed that the new superintendent should fill the deputy superintendent's position, which is vacant.
