GISD superintendent search narrowed to six

Greenville – The Greenville ISD has begun interviewing new superintendent candidates, but they aren't releasing any names. Six candidates have been chosen to be interviewed through tomorrow. The GISD board then plans to narrow those six down to three and conduct second interviews next week, with February 20th as a target date to announce the lone finalist for the position.

By law, school districts are required to release the names of finalist for superintendent. However, the district can narrow the field to just one and release that name as the sole finalist for the position. Once that person is picked, a 21-day waiting period begins before the job can formally be offered.

It is common for school districts to release only the name of a lone finalists for superintendent positions. Greenville officials have expressed pleasure with the quality of applicants for the position.
