The Board of Education is making rapid progress on the Superintendent Search. At the April 1, 2015 meeting, the Board selected 8 Semi-Finalist Superintendent candidates. The 8 Semi-Finalists were selected from 25 applicants. The 25 applications were the 2nd highest number a district has received according to the Colorado Association of School Boards. Telluride received 29 applications. On April 7, the Board selected three Finalists from the list of eight Semi-Finalists. The Finalists are: Dr. Brenda Krage, former Assistant Superintendent in Pueblo, Mr. Brian Krause; Director of Student Services, Jefferson County Schools and previous Principal, Platte Canyon High School; and Mr. Rim Watson, Principal, Fitzsimmons Middle School and previous Assistant Superintendent, Christian County Schools, Kentucky.
On Friday, April 17, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm in the Canyon Room (HS building), the District will host a “Meet and Greet” for the public to meet the three candidates. Those who attend will be able to fill out a card to share perceived strengths and weaknesses of each Finalist.
On Saturday, April 18, the Finalists will be interviewed by committees and the Board of Education. Twenty-one applications were received from employees, parents and community members desiring to participate as members of the interview committees. All 21 have been approved to participate in interviewing of the finalists. Following the interviews, the committees will provide the Board of Education with lists of identified candidate strengths and weaknesses.
The Board of Education will select the Superintendent from the three Finalists at a meeting on April 20, 2015.
