Richland Superintendent Finalists in Town for Public Forums

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- The three people who could become the next leader of the Richland School District are in the Tri-Cities this week. Interviews and public forums to pick a superintendent start Tuesday.

School Board President Rick Jansons hopes people turn out to the Richland High School library starting Tuesday evening to give their input and ask questions of the three superintendent finalists.

All of them are current administrators across the northwest. One works in the Snoqualmie Valley School District, another in Oak Harbor, and the third in Oregon for the Canby School District.

Jansons says the interviews will take place Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the library, and says getting feedback from the public will make a difference in their decision.

"It's important to gather this public input because this person is a community leader of our schools. We all have input, we all care. We are looking for the candidate that can best lead our district to the next level of excellence," Jansons said.

After this set of interviews is completed, Jansons says he will be taking a group to the districts where the finalists currently work. He says the board hopes to make their decision by April 29th.

The public forums will take place at the Richland High School Library over the next three days starting at 7:30 in the evening.
