One month after beginning advertising for the superintendent of Moffat County Schools position, the district has sent out 19 application packets to interested applicants.
Personnel director Bruce Gregg said five of those have been in-state, and the other 14 expressing interest have been out-of-state.
Two community members attended a public meeting held Thursday night, the second of two scheduled to get community input on the search.
No community members were in attendance at the first meeting.
The community and board members broke down the criteria that will be used in the search into three areas:
Characteristics that will be sought in a superintendent.
The goals the district wants to achieve.
District needs that must be met.
Board member John Kinkaid, who was delegated the duty of coordinating the search, said input from public meetings, parent advisory counsel meetings and school administration and staff meetings will be used to screen possible candidates.
The deadline for those interested in the position to turn in applications is Feb. 15, at which time the screening of candidates will begin.
Kinkaid said the goal is to have a new superintendent hired by early summer.
