Super Search At Key Point
Candidates For Superintendent To Be Interviewed Saturday At Public Meeting
February 13, 2020
The Kimball School Board conducted a special meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 11, and will hold another at 8 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.
Both meetings involve the applicants to become the district’s next superintendent.
On Tuesday night, board members reviewed in executive session the 14 applications and looked over the references from the Nebraska School Board Association.
The board is expected to select three or four candidates to be interviewed. Names of those selected were to be announced on Wednesday.
According to current Superintendent Elizabeth Owens, the board will interview the top three or four applicants at 8 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.
The board interviews will be public, but only the board and the applicants will be allowed to speak. The public will have the opportunity to listen to the responses of every applicant.
Additional private interviews will be conducted by various committees, including administration, teachers and support staff. Those committees will then make a recommendation to the board. Ultimately, the board will choose the superintendent.
Owens submitted her resignation to step down for family reasons at the end of this school year. A search also is underway for a successor to high school principal Mo Hanks, who will be departing after the school year to become Crawford superintendent.
