Financial Manager of Detroit Public Schools to stay on job until June
Robert Bobb, the state appointed Emergency Financial Manager of Detroit Public Schools, will stay on the job through the end of the school year. Bobb was appointed to the position by outgoing Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm. Bobb's one-year contract ends in March.
According to a spokesman for Governor-elect Rick Snyder, a deal has been worked out to keep Bobb on the job through June.
The Associated Press reports:
Detroit Public Schools spokesman Steve Wasko says the extra 120 days gives Bobb more time to work out a "fully smooth transition" to the next emergency manager or a new superintendent.
