The state’s regional school superintendents will finally get their paychecks, but the battle to keep their jobs is just beginning. The governor this week signed measures that will pay the superintendents for the first time since June, but the funding from the corporate personal property replacement tax lasts only through the end of the fiscal year.

Madison County Regional Superintendent Bob Daiber (pictured) says a legislative panel must decide what to do with the office before April 1, and an education campaign will soon get under way.

Daiber says it’s unlikely the offices can be eliminated, if that’s what lawmakers choose to do, before the 2014 elections – as the regional superintendent is an elected position.
