A large showing of parents, teachers and taxpayers in the Liverpool Central School District filed into the Board of Education meeting Thursday night to demonstrate against the board's selection process for the district's next superintendent.

More than 100 people — many wearing black shirts — expressed concerns with how the superintendent search was conducted.

Board member Nick Blaney agreed and suggested delaying the vote, but he was overruled by his colleagues. The board voted 6-3 to select Daniel Henner for the superintendent role.

Current Superintendent Mark Potter is set to retire this summer on July 1. Meanwhile, the school board is finalizing a contract with Henner.
