A search for the next superintendent of the Piper Public Schools has narrowed 20 candidates to four, according to district officials.
The Piper Board of Education narrowed the list of candidates recently, and the four candidates will be interviewed on Monday and Tuesday, April 1 and 2, at the Piper district, said Kelly Kultala, Piper district spokeswoman.
Superintendent Steve Adams, retiring at the end of June, has been helping with the selection process. He said he is “very impressed with the quality of the applicants and Piper would be very lucky to have any one of them as their new superintendent.”
While candidates are in Piper for the interviews, they will be offered tours of the Piper school buildings.
The Piper community has been invited to attend a meet and greet event with each candidate at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, April 1 and 2, in the Piper High School Library, 4400 N. 107th. The meet and greet will consist of the candidates providing information about their background and reasons for wanting to lead the Piper school district, along with questions asked by a facilitator and about 15 minutes of one-on-one conversations with members of the Piper community.
The candidates will meet with the Piper Board of Education in a special session at Piper High School immediately following the community meet and greet. The board is anticipated to go into a closed session to talk about personnel during these special session with no action being taken later that day.
