The South Shelby School District is back to searching for a Superintendent after the incoming Superintendent’s arrest.

Mike Rennells, 34, of Grant City was set to take office July 1st. Last week he was arrested and charged with stealing and forgery from his current school in Worth County.

The South Shelby Board recently held emergency meetings to discuss its options moving forward. On Friday the board met for over two hours but did not come up with a timeline to hire Rennell’s replacement. They also rescinded a job offer to his wife to teach 6th grade.

The meeting Monday night will be to establish a timeline and discuss candidates for the Superintendent job.

Rennells is currently free on a $10,000 bond. The investigation into Rennells was prompted by charge discrepancies on a credit card issued by the Worth County School District.
