A spokesman for Pontiac Schools tells wilx.com Lansing superintendent T.C. Wallace is one of two finalists for the the district's open super job.

Wallace will be in Pontiac Monday to take questions from the public between 9am and 11am. The school board will then conduct a second interview from 1pm - 2:30pm.

The second finalist - Brian Ali, special assistant to the superintendent in Mattson, Illinois - will go through the same routine Thursday. That means Eaton Rapids super William DeFrance is no longer a candidate for the job.

Pontiac school board members will visit Lansing and Mattson, Illinois sometime during the first week of March. The board will make its decision the week of March 9, contract negotiations will happen March 16 and 23, with the goal being to have a deal finished by March 30.

A Pontiac Schools spokesman tells us the district will not buy out a contract. Wallace has a little more than two years left on his deal with Lansing Schools.

    Good riddance to him, let Pontiac deal with TC. The school board is corrupt and worthless, what with Hugh Clarke, Charles Ford, and Wallace...hopefully next time they can find someone worthy for the job, unlike this loser. I've worked with Jim Davis before and I know I am not alone in thinking that he would do well in the job.

    Is he a lame duck superintendent since he does not want to stay?
