Meet the candidates for Moffat County High School principal on Sunday
Craig — Moffat County School District is preparing to hire a permanent Moffat County High School principal and the community is invited to meet the candidates on Sunday.
“I find meet-and-greets to provide a great opportunity to see how candidates interact with different members of the community,” said Superintendent of Schools Dave Ulrich.
The meet and greet event will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday in the high school commons area.
Craig Crebar is serving as the interim principal at the high school. He was hired for the 2016-17 school year after Tim McNerney, the person originally hired last summer, was unable to fill the position.
The school district decided to hire an interim principal to provide time for a comprehensive search. That search opened Jan. 6 and yielded 12 candidates.
According to the job description the new principal, among other characteristics, must “demonstrate a strong commitment to academic excellence and personal growth of every student.”
The list has been narrowed down to four candidates who will formally interview on Monday.
“I’m confident a name will be brought to the Board of Education at the March 30 meeting,” Ulrich said.
A learn-by-doing methodology was on display Friday at the Loudy-Simpson Park pond as Moffat County High School science students learned quickly whether or not they had a future in engineering.
