BOTHELL — The three finalists vying to be the next superintendent of the Northshore School District will take part in a community forum Wednesday.
Michael Tolley, Charles McNulty and Jeanice Kerr Swift will complete the process Tuesday and Wednesday with participation in focus group discussions, a school tour, interviews with the school board and the forum.
The two-hour community forum is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Northshore Performing Arts Center at Bothell High School, 18125 92nd Ave. NE. Folks can attend in person or watch a live stream online.
The district’s Board of Directors is expected to make a selection during a special meeting Friday. Whoever is chosen will begin July 1.
