MARQUETTE, MI-- The Marquette Area Public Schools District has a new superintendent.
William Saunders is the current principal of Bothwell Middle School. Starting July 1 he’ll serve as interim superintendent for one year, after former superintendent Deborah Veiht was selected to head the Marquette-Alger Regional Educational Service Agency.
The MAPS Board says it didn’t want to launch a search for a new head so late in the school year. After a year the Board will decide whether it will keep Saunders in the position permanently.
