The Broken Bow School Board will conduct follow-up interviews with two superintendent candidates this week.
Mark Sievering, current superintendent at Conestoga Schools, will interview at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Matt Fisher, current superintendent at Chase County Public Schools, will interview at 7:00 p.m. The interviews will be open to the public.
â€śThe board thanks the staff, administrators and community members who provided very valuable input following candidate interviews last week,â€ť said board president Michelle Zlomke. â€śThe district is very fortunate to be able to choose from such a quality group of candidates.â€ť
At the boardâ€™s October 2011 meeting, the Nebraska Association of School Boards was approved to conduct a superintendent search on behalf of the district. The search firm selected their choices for best candidates for the position based on community surveys, public input, and a leadership profile developed by the board two years ago to help determine just what is expected of the superintendent.
The board selected four candidates to interview following a closed session meeting Jan. 10, to screen all applicants for the position, which will begin July 1, 2012.
The PTA hosted Meet & Greet meetings in the high schoolâ€™s media center throughout last week, with the public having the opportunity to meet each of the four candidates.
The agenda for Wednesday eveningâ€™s meeting does include a possible superintendent contract offer as an action item.
