Former Howell Superintendent Ron Wilson has a new job as superintendent of Ionia Public Schools on the west side of Michigan, according to a story on MLive, which reported that Wilson, who was runner up for the job in Ionia, was tapped for the position when negotiations broke off with the board’s first choice.
Wilson was fired in 2014 by the Howell Public Schools Board of Education over a disputed $309.33 in mileage expenses; late in 2015, the board settled a lawsuit with Wilson for $350,000. At the time of his firing, Wilson’s salary was $161,200.
Between the firing and the settlement of the suit, a recall effort was mounted and then withdrawn, a school board member resigned, and current Superintendent Erin MacGregor was hired.
