Clinton School Board holds special meeting to review superintendent candidates
On Tuesday, Feb. 26, the Clinton Community Schools Board of Education held a special meeting to review applications for the position of superintendent. All members were in attendance at the meeting. The current superintendent, David Pray, retires at the end of the school year.Applications for the position were received from 13 people. Board members reviewed the applications, which had names and any identifying information removed. Nine of the applications were rejected, leaving five candidates.The board then voted 4-2, with one abstention, to extend the deadline for applications to March 8. Dick Dunham, consultant from the Michigan Association of School Board Superintendent Search recommended the extension. He believes some candidates may not have applied because the salary range was not listed in the original posting.Now that the salary range has been added to the posting, Dunham believes it is important to see if any other qualified candidate applies. Members of the school board will screen any additional applications during a special meeting on Tuesday, March 12.
