Board of Education to Interview Candidates for Interim Superintendent

The Jefferson County Board of Education will meet tomorrow to interview candidates for interim superintendent of the district.

Board president Steve Imhoff previously said he wanted to avoid appointing a temporary superintendent, but it may be necessary if a new leader isn’t in place before current Superintendent Sheldon Berman’s departure. His contract expires at the end of June. The board decided not to renew it earlier this year. Berman has accepted a job in Oregon.

Three candidates will be interviewed in private tomorrow afternoon, but no one will be hired. Tomorrow is also the deadline for candidates to apply to be permanent superintendent. The board will begin reviewing those applications later this month.
