SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH UPDATE
Each candidate spent between 70 and 90 minutes in front of the committee answering 15 questions about various topics of school management. At the conclusion of the question phase of the interview the candidates were given the opportunity to ask questions related to the position and the overall operation of the Hazleton Area School District.
The committee unanimously agreed that all four (4) members should be brought back for a second interview which will be held on Thursday, April 30th. The second round will encompass participation from a variety of stakeholders that make up the HASD. Each candidate will be individually interviewed by a group of students, faculty and staff, administrators, and members of our community.
The Hazleton Area School District is seeking parents, students, concerned citizens, community leaders, and faculty and staff members who would be interested in being part of the second round of interviews. The community component of the interview process will begin at approximately 5:00 P.M. and is expected to last until 9:00 P.M. We can accommodate 50-60 participants and encourage the involvement of our community to take part in this process.
