Indiana schools board picks eight semi-finalists for superintendent position

Friday, June 21, 2013

The Indianapolis Public School Board has picked eight semi-finalists to interview this week to become its next superintendent.

Board President Diane Arnold said after tonight’s board meeting that the board was presented with 40 candidates earlier in the day during a closed-door meeting with the private firm aiding the search. Of those, the board picked eight who will be interviewed by the board during private sessions Friday and Saturday to replace Eugene White, whose contract was bought out by the board after nearly eight years as head of the district.
