TONIGHT: Candidates for Huntsville superintendent of education to be announced

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A busy month is on tap for Huntsville's Board of Education.  On Thursday evening, we will learn the names of the five finalists for Huntsville Superintendent of Education. Then, a series of interviews will begin.

Each of the interviews are open to the public.

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 the five finalists.

No names have been announced publicly.  The AASB will present the names of the finalists in a special called meeting on Thursday, January 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the Annie Merts Center, located at 200 White Street.
