The Lower Kuskokwim School District, or L-K-S-D, is closer to selecting a new superintendent. The current superintendent, Gary Baldwin will be retiring at the end of this academic year after 30-years with L-K-S-D.
The L-K-S-D Board of Education conducted a nationwide search for a new Superintendent recently. There are now three finalists who hope to head up the nation’s largest rural school district. Board President Susan Murphy says they will conduct job interviews next week.
The three finalists who will field questions from the L-K-S-D Board are; Jacob Jensen who is currently the superintendent for the Valdez schools, Ron Saari from the Black River Falls School District in Wisconsin, who is also their superintendent now, and L-K-S-D Assistant Superintendent Daniel Walker.
Board President Susan Murphy says they hope to make an offer to one of them at the March Board meeting.
