Interim superintendent promoted by school board

Dr. Flinnoia Hall III 
Dr. Flinnoia Hall III has been named as the superintendent of the Romulus Community School District.
Hall, who has been serving as the acting superintendent since February of 2019, will assume his permanent role on July 1 when his current contract as acting superintendent expires.
Members of the Romulus Community Schools Board of Education named Hall to the permanent position by a 4-3 vote during a meeting in November.
“I'm honored that the board has seen the work that I've done in the acting role, and has considered the work I've done over nearly six years in this district,” said Hall. “I'm glad they feel that I am the right person for this job.”

“Dr. Hall is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment where all students are able to learn and thrive,” said Judy Kennard, who serves as school board president. “Dr. Hall is aware of the district challenges, and thus far has shown he can address each one of them willingly and strategically.”
“We are addressing various concerns,” said Hall. “My goal is to streamline support at Central Office for district staff.”
Hall also plans to expand career and technical education offerings at Romulus High School.
School board members include Kennard, Edward Martell, Danielle Funderburg, Denisa Terrell, Theresa Beard, Ursula Wester and Debi Pyles.
“Dr. Hall's goal is to transform Romulus Community Schools into the educational choice of excellence, to be the best in class,” explained Kennard.
Hall has worked in K through 12 education since 1999. He has worked in Saginaw, Highland Park and Detroit Public Schools.
