MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Public School Board members will continue their search for a new superintendent at a special meeting Wednesday. 

President Michael Bonds requested the meeting, and the nine-person board will decide how it will temporarily fill the job vacancy created when Dr. Gregory Thornton resigned last month to take over as CEO of Baltimore City Schools.

Thornton's last day with MPS is June 30. A temporarily replacement is expected to be named as the board works to find a permanent replacement.

The school board met last month in closed executive session, something the board could move to do Wednesday evening as members discuss plans to fill the position.

CBS 58's Matt Doyle has a preview of the meeting and what local elected officials have to say about the search.
