The Washington County Board of Education selected a new school superintendent Wednesday, but the name of the person was not released.
School board members were attempting to contact the candidate Wednesday to offer the person the job, said school board member Doris J. Nipps.
If the person accepts the job, the candidate's name will be forwarded to the state Department of Education for approval, Nipps said.
Board members made the decision in a closed meeting, Nipps said.
The new superintendent will replace Wayne F. Gersen, who left the school system in July to head a school system in New York.
