Grandville Schools chooses new superintendent

GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — Roger Bearup has been selected as the new superintendent for Grandville Public Schools.

The Grandville school board unanimously chosen Bearup on Tuesday after holding interviews with the finalists for the job on Monday.

Bearup is currently the assistant superintendent in at Lowell Public Schools, where he led curriculum development, assessment programs and educator evaluation since 2006, according to a Tuesday release from the district.
