The Flint school board may pick the district’s new superintendent this evening.

Larry Watkins is currently Flint's interim school superintendent. His decision to retire prompted the district to launch a national search for his replacement.

The school board is scheduled to hold a final round of interviews with the two remaining finalists for the superintendent job.

Bilal Kareem Tawwab is an assistant superintendent in the Detroit Public Schools.  

Errick L. Greene is an executive with a national education consulting group.  He’s also the son of a Flint school board member.

The winning candidate will assume control of a school district with a more than 20 million dollar budget deficit and declining enrollment.
