After failing to hire a superintendent last week, Neligh-Oakdale has created a new timeline for applications for its top administrative position.
Applications for superintendent will be accepted via the Nebraska Association of School Boards until Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Neligh-Oakdale's first hiring attempt resulting in seven applications, and the six-member Board of Education selected three candidates to interview.
Just hours after announcing the finalists, one of the three candidates withdrew from consideration. The remaining two candidates were interviewed, but negotiations were unsuccessful with both candidates, forcing Neligh-Oakdale to reopen the search process.
Bill Kuester is currently serving as interim superintendent at Neligh-Oakdale. His $122,000 contract runs through June 30, 2016.
Kuester followed Kimberly Lingenfelter, who served as superintendent for five years. She resigned in December 2014 and is currently the superintendent at Cherokee Community Schools in Iowa.
