INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A state panel has appointed a consulting firm consisting of retired Indiana school administrators and teachers as the emergency manager of the financially troubled Muncie Community Schools.

The Distressed Unit Appeal Board on Monday appointed the firm Administrator Assistance on Monday. The Star Press reports (https://tspne.ws/2uaEqMV ) board Chairman Micah Vincent said the firm would provide “another voice” to help solve the school district’s problems.

Administrator Assistance’s team would include Stephen Edwards, a former assistant Muncie school superintendent. Edwards was elected to a seat on the district’s board beginning next year but has said he would resign from the board if his firm were selected.

Among the other applicants for the emergency manager appointment under a new state law was a team that included former state school superintendent Suellen Reed.
