Aurora The Board of Education adopted a resolution Dec. 17 proclaiming its intention to rehire Russ Bennett as superintendent for 40 months from March 4, 2013 to June 30, 2016.

The Board bases its decision on an overwhelming response from the community favoring Mr. Bennetts rehiring and also on his willingness to enter into negotiations with the district on a new contract, said Board President Gerald Kohanski.

He added a public hearing will take place Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at Leighton School to allow citizens to provide their comments and input.
