Centreville Board of Education members are expected to have an interim superintendent in place within two weeks.
With Stephanie Lemmer poised to leave the district for Pennfield Schools before the end of the month, the board agreed during a special meeting Monday to follow through on pursuing someone from a small group of potential candidates.
Based on board feedback, it appears current high school principal Chad Brady has the advantage. Board members said Brady’s knowledge of the district, and its staff and students, is a tough attribute to overlook.
Other potential candidates mentioned Monday are Margaret McGlinchey, Jerome Wolff, John Jarpe and Chris Rice.
Contact will be made with the five people before the board’s regularly scheduled meeting Jan. 24. The board’s personnel committee will meet with those who are interested in the post and make a recommendation or possibly suggest two finalists at that meeting.
