What’s next for Rome City Schools? The situation: You have two of the top spots open — superintendent and the system’s only high school principal. You’ve got two new members among the seven-person board of education. You’ve got a multimillion-dollar, voter-approved check to pay for a replacement middle school.

Looking at the school system — it’s growing with 6,600-plus students. Add in the challenges of teaching in the pandemic era (with virus numbers climbing again just as work begins to welcome students back July 29). Turnover in the classrooms and the overall school system has been higher than normal — but many jobs were filled by a sweeping school board “yes” vote on Tuesday night.
