The College Station Board of Education held its fifth day of interviews for the superintendent post on Tuesday. The board held meetings last Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and this Monday.
The district’s website says the lone finalist for the position will be nominated later this month. The school board’s next meeting is June 20. The school board plans to approve the new superintendent’s contract in July, after the mandatory 21-day waiting period has ended, allowing the new superintendent to take office from that month.
Applications closed on May 12, and Lancaster announced to its board of directors at its May meeting that it had 48 applicants. The board held a closed-door meeting on May 17 to review the candidate pool and select candidates to interview. The number of interviewees has not yet been disclosed.
On March 21, College Station Superintendent Mike Martindale announced plans to retire on July 1. On March 27, the board unanimously elected N2Learning to help find Martindale’s replacement. In April, his poll was posted online so that his members of the community could provide feedback on the supervisor search.
