The search for a new superintendent at Neligh-Oakdale will continue despite interviewing two applicants this week.
According to Shari Becker, Director of Education Leadership Search Service with the Nebraska Association of School Boards, the Neligh-Oakdale Board of Education will begin accepting new applications for the position.
"It is still very early, and we are certain we will have other qualified applicants," Becker said.
According to Becker the board was unable to successfully negotiate with a candidate.
"This allows for the opportunity to reopen the application process for the position and continue to recruit quality applicants," Becker said.
Becker said that the timing of the search is early which gives us the ability to move forward with an altered timeline.
"The board appreciates the support of the individuals who have participated in the interview process and are committed to finding the right individual to lead the district," said Becker.
Neligh-Oakdale interviewed Aaron Plas of York on Tuesday and Mark S. Smith of Plattsmouth on Wednesday.
