The Mitchell County Board of Education continues to make progress in naming a new superintendent. Among the steps completed in the process, the Board reviewed results of a survey of the community and school system staff to seek input as to the characteristics desired in the new superintendent; adopted qualifications for the position; approved and disseminated a recruitment brochure; reviewed applications; and scheduled interviews for candidates that appeared to have closely met the qualifications. Forty applications were received from a broad range of applicants. From these, a number of candidates were chosen for close review and will be interviewed during the next two weeks as the Board seeks to determine those applicants best qualified for the position. At least 14 calendar days before taking final action on the position, the Board is required to make available to the public documents for inspection and/or copying concerning as many as three persons under consideration whom the Board has determined to be best qualified for the position. The finalists for the position will be invited to visit the schools.
