HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The search is narrowing down, for a new superintendent of Huntsville City Schools.  The application date for the position closed yesterday, and next month, the Board of Education will interview each of the five finalists.

The Alabama Association of School Boards was hired to help find a new leader for the district, using criteria set by the Huntsville Board of Education and community assessments.  The AASB conducted advertising, processed applications, and reviewed credential/reference verifications in order to select five finalists to recommend to the board.

No names have been announced at this point.
