Four days of interviews have been set aside by the Harford County Board of Education for representatives of local stakeholder groups to interview finalists in the search for a new superintendent for Harford County Public Schools.
Stakeholder groups, such as PTAs, are being included by invitation and for advisory purposes only; the final selection of a superintendent is the responsibility of the local school board. The interview sessions are scheduled for May 20, 21, 27, and 28. Interviewers are being asked to commit to attending all four sessions.
Bea Gordon of the Maryland Association of Boards of Education (MABE), which is assisting in the superintendent search, said the four days set aside do not mean that four candidates had already been selected. In response to an inquiry from The Dagger, Gordon said that as of May 1, the school board had not been presented with the applicants and therefore, finalists had not yet been identified. Manager of Communications for HCPS Teri Kranefeld said there may ultimately be three or four, but that the board scheduled the dates in case four finalists are selected.
