Between 25 and 50 people have reportedly expressed interest already in Springfield’s vacant school superintendent job… even though the school board hasn’t yet finalized a list of qualifications for the next superintendent or determined a salary range for the job.
That work will happen next week at a special school board meeting, where community input from earlier this year will be used to finalize the criteria for the job. The board will meet behind closed doors to discuss salary and benefits.
Those decisions will help weed the list of dozens of candidates down to 7 or fewer by early December. From there, 2 or 3 finalists will be chosen for a final round of interviews and a selection before Christmas.
