CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - The Jefferson County school board will announce a new superintendent and fill two other high-profile vacancies on Monday, officials said Thursday.
Liz Thompson, a spokeswoman for the school system, said the board will select from among five finalists for the schools chief's job. She said the board also will name principals for Jefferson High School and Shepherdstown Junior High School.
The posts became vacant in May when Superintendent Jud Romine announced he was leaving. Jefferson High School Principal Jim Carpenter and Shepherdstown Junior High Principal Densil Nibert also resigned.
Thompson said the system formed three committees consisting of teachers; service personnel; and parents and community members. The committees interviewed the candidates and reported the findings to the school board, which conducted its own interviews.
