The first round of superintendent interviews will be held February 4 and 5 during a closed executive session. The board will conduct the 90-minute interviews using a script provided by search firm consultants to ensure consistency of the interviews for the candidates.
Due to applicant confidentiality, the names and number of applicants invited for a first interview are not being released.
HYA Consultants Hank Harris and Barbara Young state, "We are delighted with the caliber and of the candidates who will come to Wenatchee next week to meet the Board. They represent an outstanding array of educational leaders, and we couldn't be happier with this slate of well-qualified prospects."
Upon completing the first round of interviews, the board will debrief with the consultants and determine which candidates they will select for a final interview. The final interviews are scheduled to take place February 19-22.
