Columbia Borough School Superintendent
The Columbia Borough School Board is expected to vote Thursday night on whether to part ways with a superintendent who has been a polarizing figure from the time he was hired.
According to a meeting agenda, the board will vote either to replace Tom Strickler when his contract expires in December or retain him for an additional three to five years.
Strickler, who became superintendent in January 2018, said in a phone interview Wednesday that he was surprised to see the item on the agenda. Based on conversations he's had with the board, Strickler said, he was expecting a contract extension of at least four years.
