Ten Applicants to Interim School Board Position

by jhwygirl

A friend thought to check with the school district today on the interim position that closed Wednesday afternoon at 4:30. This is what they sent:

I spoke with Leslie, the public information officer at the school district offices. She said that they had 10 applicants and that most of them came in late in the afternoon. I asked her if I could get a copy of the questions that the applicants had to answer, and she said that she could do that because it was public information, but that they needed time to go through them and make copies for each of the school board members. She said that they planned on interviewing the candidates next week, on Tuesday and Thursday. I asked her if these would be public interviews and she said “absolutely,” that “all of the interviews would be public meetings.”

I asked her when I could come and get copies of the questionnaires and she said that they were working very hard to organize everything, and she hoped they’d have a list of everyone and a news release on the website by the end of the day. So I asked her if maybe they could just put the questionnaires on the website. She paused at first, and then said that they would definitely be able to do that since making them into .pdf’s involved using the copier, and they needed to make a whole bunch of copies for the school board anyways.

Apparently, the goal is to have the new member chosen after the interviews next week and to have that person sworn in by the next March 10th meeting.

You should know that Leslie was very nice and seemed to be trying to give me as much information as possible. I did call pretty early. It was about 9:30 in the morning when I called. I’m sure she was pretty busy with that many applicants and having most of them come in late in the day.

I can only thank my supermissoulafriend here – they want no credit.

So there it is folks. I checked the website, and I can’t find anything – so it looks like the school district wasn’t able to get the list of candidates, the new releases, or the questionnaires up on the website yet. Let’s hope it’s up by Friday – after all, the public meetings are Tuesday. People do need more than a 24 hour notice to public interviews for a school board position. They should also have the information, too.
