WELLINGTON — Lorain County Joint Vocational School Superintendent John Nolan has accepted an offer to serve as interim Wellington superintendent for a year.
Nolan will earn $95,000, said Wellington school board President Ayers Ratliff.
Nolan, who is retiring from the JVS, said he expects his contract will go before the Wellington school board at its June 27 meeting. He said he once taught in the Wellington Schools and is eager to return.
He said the start date in his contract is Aug. 1, but he may work an additional 15 days in Wellington in July. His contract at the JVS ends June 30.
Nolan, 63, said he met Monday with current Wellington Schools Superintendent Francis Scruci to discuss priorities for the district.
He said they served together in the Bellevue Schools in 2006-07 when Nolan was assistant superintendent and Scruci was high school principal.
Nolan said the most pressing concern is planning to replace McCormick Middle School, which was ranked the worst out of 15 school buildings that need to be replaced in the Exceptional Needs Program of the Ohio School Facilities Commission.
“We’ve got a bond issue to work on,” Nolan said.
Scruci is leaving the district to become superintendent of the larger Gahanna-Jefferson Schools near Columbus.
