Nampa School District appoints Interim Superintendent
The Nampa School District has a new leader appointed to help them navigate a fiscal crisis.
The District named Thomas Michelson the new Interim Superintendent. He was a superintendent in California before retiring in Nampa two years ago, according to a press release issued by the District.
Michelson will be a leading a District with a $4.3 million dollar projected shortfall. The District says the shortfall is due to budgeting “errors.”
"I personally have not gotten into the details of the budget, but I have not heard nor do I have reason to suspect there's any misappropriation of funding at this point," Michelson told Idaho On Your Side.
The District has been without a Superintendent for the two months since former Superintendent Gary Larsen resigned, for reasons related to the budget crisis.
Michelson starts full-time at the end of the month.
The committee is now starting its search for a permanent superintendent.
