The Houston School Board held a special meeting on September 24 to discuss the details of their search for a new superintendent. At last week’s meeting, Interim Superintendent Bartelson gave his resignation so he could be home to care for his wife, who has stage four cancer. Bartleson’s last day will be October 31.

In the meeting the board decided to look for an interim superintendent rather than try to hire a permanent replacement. The new interim superintendent would start November 1 and work through the end of the fiscal year, June 30. The Board still plans to start candidate screening and interviews in January 2014, with the new superintendent start date being July 1, 2014. The interim superintendent would have the potential of becoming the new permanent superintendent.

The board also decided that the interim superintendent will be offered a four-day work week and a competitive salary based on the applicant’s qualifications.

The vacancy announcement will be made immediately in numerous newspapers and websites to ensure all potential candidates know of the opening. The application deadline is set for October 14, so the board can review the best candidates at the regularly scheduled school board meeting on October 15.
