Martin is the third Ypsilanti Public Schools administrator to be named a finalist in a superintendent search. The district's merger with Willow Run Community Schools has made many employees look for new jobs due to employment uncertainty with the new district.
Superintendent Dedrick Martin is a superintendent finalist in St. Johns Public Schools and Executive Director of Facilities and Operations Scott Snyder is a superintendent finalist in Monroe Public Schools.
Ypsilanti's executive director of human resources, Sharon Irvine, also accepted a new position in March as assistant superintendent and chief human resource officer for Warren Consolidated Schools.
