The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board will spend Saturday talking about its next steps in long-term leadership of the district.
A meeting set for last Friday was snowed out. The rescheduled session, which is open to the public, is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Carolinas Aviation Museum, 4672 First Flight Drive, near the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.
The meeting should break months of public silence about the board’s plan for the future.

Heath Morrison resigned under pressure in November 2014. In January 2015 Deputy Superintendent Ann Clark, a long-time CMS employee, signed an 18-month contract for the top job, expiring this July.
That contract specifies that Clark, at her own request, won’t be a candidate for a longer term. But she later indicated a willingness to stay longer, and some board and community members want to extend her tenure. Others have said it’s essential to conduct a search and let the public have a say in the decision.
The board has not taken any public steps toward a search or held a public discussion since July.
