Members of the public today, May 27, have the opportunity to comment on the appointment of Glenn "Max" McGee as the new superintendent of the Palo Alto Unified School District, prior to a closed session in which the Board of Education will discuss terms of McGee's contract.
McGee was officially offered and accepted the position on Friday, after school board members and other education officials toured his former school, the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA) in Aurora, Illinois.
Two other opportunities for public comment on McGee's appointment will come at the board's regular meetings June 3 and June 17, when a vote to ratify a contract with the new superintendent is expected.
Today's meeting begins at 1:30 p.m. at school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave. Public comment will be taken at the beginning, before board members go into closed session.
Also on the agenda for the closed session is discussion of the Cubberley Community Center lease, over which the City of Palo Alto and the district have clashed in recent months.
