A divided Huron school board voted Tuesday to hire a deputy superintendent to lead the district while Fred Fox is on paid leave.
John Fernbaugh will start in the position Aug. 1.
Fernbaugh was most recently superintendent at Woodmore Schools in Sandusky County last year. He has held similar positions at four other Ohio districts.
The board met for about 45 minutes in a closed-door executive session before later voting to hire Fernbaugh when it reconvened in open session on Tuesday.
