The Krum school board intends to consider naming a lone finalist for the district’s superintendent position tonight.
The district has been without a permanent superintendent since Mike Davis announced his retirement in December. He officially retired Jan. 28, and Assistant Superintendent Cody Carroll has served as interim superintendent since.
Having an idea of what was wanted in the district’s next superintendent without tacking on an added expense, board President Phil Enis said the district opted not to use a search firm for the selection of its next leader.
District spokeswoman Chelbie Birdwell said the district accepted applications for the position from Feb. 14 through March 1.
Enis said that while some individuals have expressed interest in the position, Carroll at this point has been the only applicant for the job.
School boards are required to give public notice of finalists considered for superintendent at least 21 days before it can officially hire someone to the position.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Krum Independent School District Administration Building, 1200 Bobcat Blvd.
