Out of 38 applicants for the Aledo Independent School District superintendent position, the field has been narrowed to six.
“I feel really good about this group,” said Board of Trustees president Jay Stringer. “When you read through their background and all the work they’ve done, they are very strong candidates.”
Stringer said the size of the districts of the six candidates ranges from 2,220 students to 41,000.
“Many of them fall within that 5,000-10,000 range just like Aledo,” Stringer said. “We are closer to 5,000 now but will quickly reach the 10,000 mark.”
The board will interview candidates March 27-28.
“Each candidate brings a highly-qualified skill set and background to lead the district going forward in all areas of student learning and achievement, finance, growth, personnel and community engagement,” Stringer said.
