Democrats gained control of the school board and in 2012 fired superintendent Tony Tata, who had been hired by a Republican-led board.

It was chaotic as parents, teachers and community members shouted at the governing board when one member initially moved to table the agenda item.

Over the past three months, the board sought the public's input on the cost reductions by holding town hall meetings, hearing comments during regular board meetings and hosting a suggestion box on the district's website where visitors could submit ideas and suggestions.

After a longstanding period of decreased enrolment, she said the board was caught off guard by a rush of new students coming from the Toronto area and outside Canada.

Board member Bill Fletcher said a closed search this time would protect the applicants.

"We need to figure out what really happened, and what went wrong". The board hopes to hire a new superintendent in the spring who can begin work July 1. His group is a coalition of 68 of the largest school districts around the country, focusing together on improving urban education. He said the firm understands the importance of separating middle school and high school students on a campus.

Canavan suggested letting the task force discuss and decide on matters such as hiring additional staff and then report to the board. Member Terry Prykowski asked for an evaluation of long-term funding needed for those facility upgrades, while Warren said his main push would be to update and modernize the district's website.

The board will vote on these items during their upcoming meeting February 27.

For that superintendent search, Wake hired McPherson & Jacobson, a Nebraska-based firm, which said naming the finalists and having them meet with the public would make the process more transparent and lead to greater public support when the board made its choice.

"The board decided not to expose candidates to potential retribution by their current employers - even the finalists", he said.
