Parent interest delays vote on school leader

After hearing from a crowd of parents and some students, the board that manages Sci High postponed a vote to choose a new school leader last week, saying they want to allow more time for comment and community feedback. The board also heard a monthly financial report that was described as “bleak” because of unexpected expenses.
