Superior School Board members abruptly abandoned their superintendent search today and retained Jay Mitchell for another two years.

An afternoon school district press release said "The board is pleased to announce that Jay Mitchell has agreed to their request to revoke his retirement and serve two more years as superintendent."

A search committ composed of board members, staff and community representatives has been searching to find a replacement for Mitchell, who had announced retirement plans. He has served in his position for nine years.

The district said five superintendent candidates were interviewed by the selection committee on Friday and Saturday.

"At the conclusion of the interviews, the board heard the committee's comments and advice and then went into closed session to discuss," said the prepared statement. "The board met again" today "in closed session and after lengthy discussion decided neither of the two remaining candidates best meet the interests of the district."
