A vote to have Zrike fill the position was placed Friday night. The school committee voted to “extend an offer” for Zrike to enter into the next steps of the position.

In June 2019, Zrike made the announcement to step down as superintendent for Holyoke Public Schools. He took charge of the district after the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to place the Holyoke Public Schools into receivership, due to poor academic performance.
