I know you are anxious to hear more about the search for a new principal.
First, let me say that Mrs. Hargrove's contract has been extended until the end of October, so at least we get to have her with us for another month.
Second, I called Dr. Robinson's (the superintendent's) office this morning to see where we are. So as you might remember on Tuesday, Sept 13, 3 parents, 3 teachers, and 3 students participated in a panel interview of 6 candidates. We nominated 3 candidates to move forward through the grueling second round of interviews with Dr. Robinson, etc. Those interviews were conducted on Friday, Sept 16 (I believe).
Last week, I suspect there was alot of discussion, checking of backgrounds and references. Before any announcement about a principal can be made, the School Board must approve the candidate. The next school board meeting is Tuesday, Oct 4. So we won't hear anything before next Tuesday at the earliest.
That is where we stand today. If you have any questions, please let me know. Also please feel free to share this message with others and send them my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they have follow up questions.
Have a good Monday!
