Catawba County Schools Board of Education is close to naming an interim superintendent.
On Friday, the board met at Crowe and Davis, a firm in Conover where CCS attorney Crystal Davis works. The closed-session meeting was to discuss interim superintendent candidates.
The board recessed its meeting in the afternoon Friday to reconvene Monday at 4 p.m. at Crowe and Davis, 121 First Ave. South in Conover.
"Several board members had conflicts and had to leave (Friday's meeting)," said CCS Board Chairwoman Joyce Spencer.
Spencer could not comment on whether an interim superintendent will be named Monday.
CCS Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley's last day with the school system is Sept. 30 when he will leave for his new position as superintendent of New Hanover County Schools in Wilmington. Markley was employed with CCS for five years.
The board hired the North Carolina School Board Association to conduct a search for a new CCS superintendent. The board plans to hire a superintendent by March.
