County school board votes in favor of Natl. superintendent search

(WMC-TV) - The Shelby County School Board of Education has voted to conduct a national search for a superintendent to head the school system when Memphis and Shelby County merge.

At the same time, some municipal districts are taking matters into their own hands. They want to hire their own superintendent using a consulting firm.

Tuesday night, board members also decided to back a proposed county-wide sales tax hike for schools. The vote was 14 to 6.

The resolution primarily encourages voters to support the ballot measure.
