Something to keep an eye on: The Ledger-Enquirer out of Columbus, Ga., is reporting the school board president there plans to ask Indianapolis Public Schools superintendent Eugene White to apply for her district’s vacant top job.
White is from the Columbus area and still has family there — he unsuccessfully applied for jobs in Alabama and South Carolina to, in part, move closer to them. Additionally, several school board candidates who have criticized White were elected to the IPS School Board in November.
But it’s also not clear White — current holder of Indiana’s highest-profile local school administration job — wants to even apply. After being passed over for the two jobs in March, he issued a statement saying he was staying put. White, 64, also pointed out to the Ledger-Enquirer that he’s nearing retirement.
