The Stevens Point School Board on Monday will hold a special closed-session meeting to interview a possible interim superintendent candidate for the 2015-16 school year.
The name of the candidate has not been released, and it’s not currently known if the candidate is internal or from outside the district.
The School Board announced last week it would seek an interim superintendent for the next school year after failing to reach a decision on hiring either of the vetted finalists for the spot, Jack Stoskopf, Jr. and Kehl Arnson.
Stoskopf is the assistant superintendent for business/personnel services in the D.C. Everest Area School Distric. Arnson is the district’s director of secondary education. The two finalists were chosen from a pool of about 30 applicants for the position, which became available after Superintendent Attila Weninger announced he was resigning in June.
The men were both made available for a public meet and greet, and the board also took steps to hear public opinion on the candidates, both public and anonymously. But in the end, the board couldn’t agree on either.
“While both are strong candidates, neither embodies the specific needs of the district at this time,” said Board President Angel Faxon in a written statement. “We appreciate both candidates’ time, candor, and willingness to serve the district.”
The board meets at Bliss Educational Services Center, 1900 Polk St., on Monday at 6:30 PM.
