FAIRFIELD — School board trustees have narrowed the search for an incoming superintendent down to two people.
The Fairfield-Suisun School District board spent another Saturday conducting interviews to replace current Superintendent Jacki Cottingim-Dias, who will retire in June.
Because the item is a personnel issue, Board President Perry Polk said he couldn’t discuss particulars of those being interviewed. He did say that the search is focused on two people, which the board has now interviewed for multiple hours each.
The board will discuss hiring a lawyer to craft and negotiate a contract for one of the candidates at Thursday’s meeting. He said they are getting ahead of the process by looking into a lawyer, even before a job offer is made. The board meets at 6 p.m. at the District Office at 2490 Hilborn Road.
“It’s a normal thing for a board to do,” Polk said. “We wanted to at least get the ball rolling.”
Polk said the search is starting to come to a head after the interviews and presentations from the candidates. He gave no timetable for an announcement.
“We think we have a pretty good idea of what they are capable of,” Polk said.
