COLD SPRING -- The ROCORI School District officially has their interim superintendent in place.

The school board approved Dr. John Thein's contract at their meeting Wednesday night. The contract became effective Thursday and is considered an "at-will" contract, which can be ended by either the district or Thein. Thein will be paid $2,750 per week.

Thein has held two "interim" superintendent roles before. He's also held one acting superintendent role before. He spent 17 years as the superintendent for Roseville Area Schools.

Thein replaces Scott Staska, who is on administrative leave after his arrest last month for indecent exposure. His case should be decided in the next few weeks.
