STANWOOD — Community visits and public meetings are planned this week with the top candidates to be the next superintendent of the Stanwood-Camano School District.
Deborah Rumbaugh, Jay Jordan and John Boyd emerged as the finalists after the district’s Board of Directors conducted interviews with six hopefuls on Saturday.
Each will make a visit to the school district to meet with staff and teachers, and to take part in a virtual community forum at 6 p.m. on Zoom. Students, parents and members of the community can submit questions ahead of time to be asked at each forum.
Rumbaugh, executive director of instructional leadership in the Highline School District in King County, is scheduled for Tuesday.
Jordan, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning in the Bellingham School District, will visit Wednesday.
Boyd, superintendent of the Quincy School District in eastern Washington since 2014, will visit Thursday.
Separate links for each community meeting can be found online at stanwood.wednet.edu/supt__search.
The school board plans a special meeting May 14 to name its choice to succeed Superintendent Jean Shumate, who has led the district since 2001 and announced earlier this year she would retire June 30.
