The Beaufort County Board of Education will interview seven semi-finalists for superintendent this week, beginning Monday and continuing tomorrow.
The board also interviewed candidates today and will meet later this evening in County Council Chambers to consider a proposal from board chairman Bill Evans to create committees to gain feedback from teachers and staff, and advise the board on curriculum, finance and human resources issues.
The board met with its search firm, Ray and Associates, behind closed doors last week for six hours to screen applicants who have applied for the district's top post. Read more here.
A candidate could be hired as soon as next month, based on the board's previously stated timeline.
Interim superintendent Jackie Rosswurm has not applied for the position.
Rosswurm took over after Valerie Truesdale retired in October. Truesdale announced her retirement July 20 just before accepting a job overseeing technology for the Charlotte-Mecklenberg School District in North Carolina.
After interviews, the board will meet again with the consultant to select at least three finalists, who will undergo a second round of interviews with the Board Feb. 12-15 and speak at public forums, according to the district.
