Toledo Public Schools have
narrowed down their candidates for the position of interim superintendent. There
are now only three.
The board decided who of
the five original candidates they wanted to bring in for interviews after about
an hour and a half of discussion in executive session Wednesday night.
The three people they will
interview are: Dr. Mike Zalar, the current superintendent of Oregon City
Schools; Douglas Heuer, superintendent of Cleveland Heights-University Heights
Schools; and internal candidate Dr. Romules Durant, an assistant superintendent
Board President Brenda
Hill said these three candidates have what they're looking for.
"I will just say that we
picked three people who we thought would fit in Toledo best, that's all," Hill
said. "I'm not going to comment on pros or cons of them. Those are the people
we selected that we thought might fit, and we want to question them more, so we'll
see how things work out."
Whoever is selected will
start as interim superintendent after Dr. Jerome Pecko's contract ends on July
Hill said the board
treasurer will contact each candidate and set up interviews for April 2 and 4.
It could be just days after that that one of them is chosen.
