Although there has been talk recently in the community that the
dates on the timeline for the Bremerton school superintendent
search have changed, district spokeswoman Patty Glaser said today
that they remain the same as previous circulated.
School board member Louis Mitchell will be out of town for the
first two weeks of April, when the board is scheduled to interview
job candidates. He would be back for a potential final vote on
April 16, though. Colleen Smidt, of Bremerton Community 4 Kids, was
concerned that the board would decide to hold the final vote before
Mitchell’s return. She was glad to hear this afternoon that the
dates have not been changed.
”We want to try to make this process as fair and as
transparent as possible,” Smidt said.
According to the school district’s website, the timeline is:
March 27 Deadline for applications
April 11 Interviews (by school board and observers)
April 14-16 Final three candidates visit the district to meet
with staff and community
April 16 Board deliberates
April 23 Final selection no later than this date
July 1 New superintendent begins
The board will meet in a study session tonight to talk about a
flier describing what the district seeks in a new superintendent.
The meeting is set for 6 pm at the district offices, 134 Marion
