The search for the next leader of the Rochester's city school district is down to 2.
After 10 months of searching, the answer could come this week.
News 8 has learned Tim Mains, a former long time Rochester city council member and principal of School #50 and Doctor Carlinda Purcell, the former superintendent of schools in Montgomery County, Alabama are the 2 up for the job.
The head of the Rochester teachers union Adam Urbanski says he's not happy with either candidate though.
Adam Urbanski says, "Mains doesn't have any experience...as superintendent and Purcell has the 'wrong' experience as superintendent."
Urbanski says Purcell was not a very collaborative school chief and wants to see interim superintendent William Cala stay on the job for as long as it takes.
Cala, who continues to win praise, says he's willing to stay on the job until they find a replacement. Cala says, "I came in as an interim offering my assistance to the board and I reaffirmed that tonight. I will not apply for the permanent superintendent position."
Board members tell News 8 they plan on interviewing the two finalists on Friday and expect a final decision by next week.
