Members of the Gainesville Board of Education informally agreed in May to extend Superintendent Wanda Creel’s contract, then some members apparently changed their minds before she announced in September she would not stay on when her first contract expires, according to emails between board members. Creel said at a Sept. 5 board work session she would “transition to cheering for the Red Elephants from a distance” when her contract ends June 30. Information about the contract, and the board’s agreement on it, was included in emails to and from board members in May.
