Who will be the next superintendent of Clarke Community School District? That answer has yet to be determined.
The Clarke Community School Board is still in deliberations with choosing a new superintendent.
The board held a special session Monday evening with the purpose of choosing a new superintendent.
"No decision has been made yet," said Clarke School Board President Gerard Linskens during a phone interview Tuesday morning. "(As of) yesterday (Monday) evening, we're still in deliberations."
Clarke Community School District retained the services of McPherson and Jacobson L.L.C. to assist in conducting its search.
There are five final candidates for the new superintendent position at Clarke.
The candidates include:
• Brandon Eighmy, principal of Clarke Community Elementary School.
• Brett Gibbs, superintendent of Audubon Community School District.
• Benita Gonzales, shared superintendent of Sigourney and Tri-County community school districts.
• Steve Seid, interim superintendent of Clarke Community School District.
• Dr. Pamela Vogel, superintendent of East Union Community School District.
Interviews were conducted with the final candidates throughout last week.
Linskens said a decision will most likely be made during the board's regularly scheduled meeting next week.
When a new superintendent is chosen, he or she will assume duties July 1.
"That's where we stand," Linskens said. "Still in deliberations, still considering some things."
