INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– The Indianapolis Board of School Commissioners said Wednesday they have received 26 applications so far for superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools.
The new superintendent, which will replace retired Dr. Eugene White, will be selected before Aug. 5, the first day of the 2013-2014 school year.
School officials have held several public meetings to allow community members to weigh in on the search for a new superintendent. Commissioners are expected to review the candidates, taking into account data gained from the community meetings. They will then be given a list of candidates to consider for initial interviews by the search firm hired to lead the search process.
In late February, IPS school board members voted Dr. Peggy Hinckley to be interim superintendent until a permanent replacement was hired.
