The field of contenders to become Springfield’s next school superintendent has been whittled down to six.
The consultants hired by the school board to assist in the search have submitted the names of six semifinalists… but those names are not being made public.
Instead, the school board will conduct closed door interviews on December 7th and trim the list to two or three finalists.
Those names will be made public, and the candidates will take part in public question-and-answer sessions.
A final decision will be made by December 11th, and if contract terms are reached, the new superintendent should be announced by the end of the year.
