Washington County Board of Education officials said 31 people had by Monday filed paperwork indicating interest in the job of schools superintendent.
Applications had to be postmarked by July 11, so School Board President B. Marie Byers said it could be Wednesday before the board has a final tally on the number of people interested in the job.
Byers said five of the applicants are from Maryland and at least one is from within the county school system.
She would not give a further breakdown of the applicants, saying she had not yet provided that information to other members of the board.
