If you go

What: Moffat County School District superintendent interviews

When: 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday

Where: Moffat County School District administration building

The Board of Education will interview three candidates for the position this week, and the finalists also will meet with advisory groups in separate meetings, as well.

— This week, the Moffat County School Board of Education will conduct interviews with the three finalists in its superintendent search to replace Joe Petrone.

Members of the board will meet with the job candidates this week, starting with Brent Curtice, the current assistant superintendent for the Moffat County School District. Curtice’s interview was Monday evening at the district administration building.

Before coming to Craig in 2011, Curtice worked as a teacher and then as a principal within the Delta County School District for 23 years.

On Wednesday, the board will host Jinger Haberer, of Aurora, who is the director of student achievement for Aurora Public Schools. In terms of administration experience, Haberer also worked eight years as a high school and middle school principal.

Thursday will see Gregory Fromm, of Thermal, Calif., come to the area. Fromm has been assistant superintendent of administrative services for California’s Coachella Valley Unified School District for the past three years and was a middle school principal for five years.

In addition to the board interview, candidates will meet this week with advisory groups composed of district staff and administrators, as well as community representatives, many of whom are parents of students within MCSD.

Board President JB Chapman said this stage in the process is an exciting one.

“There’s some tension to make the right decision, but on the flip side, we’ve got the opportunity to meet with three very able people to see who’s the best fit for our community,” he said. “They’ve all got their strengths, and they all had certain pieces about them that made us want to meet with them before making our decision.”
