Public invited to interviews for superintendent

The first of four candidates for Greybull superintendent will visit town next week and the public is invited to listen in on that person’s interview with the community stakeholder committee from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22 in the GHS auditorium.

Subsequent interviews with the remaining three candidates are planned for the same time and location on Tuesday, Feb. 28, Wednesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 8 — and the public is invited to attend them all.

Gary Meredith, the district’s current superintendent, said each candidate will be interviewed by four different committees. In addition to the open interviews with the community stakeholders, each candidate will also meet with committees comprised of school staff and central office/administration as well as the full school board.

The interviews with the community stakeholders group will be set up like an open forum, Meredith said.  Members of that committee, made up of nine to 12 people, will take turns asking questions of the candidate.

“Basically, folks can observe the interviews, and if they choose, can put in their input with members of the committee,” he said. “Just because they show up doesn’t mean they will be able to ask a question.  It’s more of a time to observe…and listen.”
