Two superintendent candidates will be interviewed by the Neligh-Oakdale Board of Education on Thursday.
The board will interview two retired superintendents - Lee Sayer and Bill Kuester - at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, in the board room. The interviews will be open to the public but no public comment will be taken, according to the meeting notice.
Sheri Becker, Director of Education Leadership Search Service for the Nebraska Association of School Boards, said the board will interview the candidates and will determine the length of contract when one is offered. If a one-year contract is offered, she said that is considered an interim.
Becker said the board is at the beginning of its search, and there may be more interviews with other candidates in the future.
Sayer formerly was superintendent at Stapleton and retired in 2013. He previously was superintendent at Clay Center and Greeley-Wolbach.
Kuester most recently served as interim superintendent at Howells-Dodge. Kuester previously was superintendent of Nebraska Unified District #1 (Clearwater, Orchard and Verdigre) and Clearwater Public Schools.
The meeting notice said the board reserves the right to go into closed session. The meeting agenda, which was included with the notice, has only one item listed, interviewing superintendent applicants.
