UPDATE: Jacobus gets green light from South Washington County School Board
Keith Jacobus is expected to be the next South Washington County Schools superintendent.
In a unanimous first-ballot vote, the District 833 School Board voted late Wednesday night to enter into contract negotiations with Jacobus.
Jacobus, 54, is an assistant superintendent in the Osseo Area School District in the western Twin Cities suburbs.
Jacobus toured the district on Tuesday, met with staff members and the public and was interviewed by the board Tuesday night.
