LIVINGSTON – The list of candidates for the position of Livingston Independent School District superintendent has been narrowed to six.
Trustees set up an interview schedule for the six as-yet-unnamed candidates during a special-called meeting of the board Monday night. Two of those candidates were interviewed Tuesday night and two more on Wednesday, with the board to interview the final two candidates Thursday night.
Trustees are expected to narrow the number of finalists to three during a special-called meeting at 12:20 p.m. Friday, with follow-up interviews with those three candidates scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday, 6 p.m. Monday and 6 p.m. Tuesday.
A finalist is to be named during the board’s regular monthly meeting on March 19, with a final vote to hire a new superintendent scheduled for April 9.
Shelly Hullihen, assistant superintendent for Student Support Services, has been serving as interim superintendent since the departure at the end of 2006 of Dr. Carol Ann Bonds, who is now serving as superintendent of the San Angelo ISD.
In other business during Monday’s meeting, the board approved adding a security guard position at the high school and approved a change in the stipend for tutorials. Pay for staff members teaching tutorial classes, currently $10 per hour, will rise to $13.50.
