Bayard, B'port school boards to hold joint meeting

The Bayard and Bridgeport school boards will meet this evening to consider ways to share resources including the possibility of sharing a superintendent.

Bayard Superintendent Travis Miller says the two districts currently share a special education director, so sharing staff will be on the table including the superintendent's position.

Bridgeport Superintendent Dave Miller is resigning effective at the end of the school year.

Bridgeport School Board Chair Justin Corman emphasized the board "wants to meet and explore all possibilities" not just the superintendent. Corman and Travis Miller both say tighter times are driving the discussion.
