School board to discuss superintendent's fate

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama school board members are set to discuss the future of Superintendent Michael Sentance.

The Board of Education is scheduled to discuss Sentance's contract at its Thursday meeting. The discussion comes six weeks after the board gave Sentence low marks in a performance evaluation.

Sentence told board members last month that he hoped to remain as superintendent, saying he was proud of the work he has accomplished.

A divided school board hired Sentance last August, naming the former Massachusetts education secretary as Alabama' new school chief.

Board members who voted for him said he would bring a fresh perspective while others raised concerns because he had no classroom or school-level experience.

The board meets at 10 a.m. Thursday in Montgomery.
