The Ashland School District board has narrowed its search for Ashland’s next superintendent from 52 applicants down to 11 semifinalists, the district announced Tuesday.
The board reviewed the applicants and considered input received from 24 hand-picked screeners Saturday before choosing the final 11, each of which will be invited to Ashland for interviews next week.
The finalists — most likely no more than four — will be chosen based on those interviews and invited back for a final interview process that will include “a committee of multiple stakeholders,” according to a notice released by the district Tuesday.
The board is seeking community members who would like to serve on that committee, and those interested are asked to contact Jackie Schad at Jacqueline.Schad@ashland.k12.or.us.
According to the district, the names of the candidates will remain confidential until the finalists are revealed.
