INDIANAPOLIS – The search for a new Indianapolis Public Schools superintendent is making progress.
The IPS Board of School Commissioners will get a better look at the candidate pool during an executive session on Tuesday. Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates—the search firm hired to help IPS find its next superintendent—will present the board with a slate of candidates.
The board will consider those candidates and schedule initial interviews on June 21 and June 22. Finalists will then be chosen and brought back for second interviews from June 26-June 28. The vote on a new superintendent is scheduled for June 29, although IPS spokesman John Althardt said the schedule is subject to change.
In February, IPS bought out the contract of Dr. Eugene White, who served as superintendent for eight years. Interim Superintendent Peggy Hinckley has guided IPS since White’s departure.
