RSD looks for superintendent

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - After four months of looking for a Richland Superintendent the school board has narrowed their decision to three finalists. Monday night the school board met with the two of the three candidates for a public interview.

The board asked the candidates over a dozen questions in front of 24-member advisory committee. The committee was made up of staff, parents and community members. Their goal is help give feedback on each candidate. Some of the big issues that were discussed were the professional learning communities, the budget and making sure kids were ready for college after graduation.

The third and final candidate will interview with the school board and advisory committee tomorrow night.

The three candidates are:

Jim Busey, Superintendent of the Lake Chelan School District

Steve Checstnus, Superintendent of the Selah School District

Pat Evenson-Brady, Superintendent of the Hood River School District

The school board will make their decision sometime in early March.
