Kent County Board Of Education Still Undecided On Wheeler

“The president of the Kent County Board of Education said the five elected members are in the process of deciding if Dr. Barbara Wheeler will be able to remove “”interim”” from her title as superintendent of the school district. The decision must be made by March 1. Wheeler, 61, was hired last June as the temporary replacement for Anthony Pack, who stunned the board with his resignation effective July 1 two years into a four-year term. Her contract extends through June 30 of this year with a salary of $125,000. Wheeler already has notified the board that she is a candidate for “”reappointment,”” meeting the February 1 deadline as required by the Board of Education’s handbook.”
