Grandview superintendent hopefuls narrowed to six


The Grandview Heights school board will hold interviews this week with six semifinalists for the district superintendent position and plans to hold interviews with two or three finalists Saturday, April 19.

The finalists also will meet April 19 with groups of community members and staffers, board member Jesse Truett said.

Truett is coordinating the superintendent search with consultants from the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio.

The semi-finalists are:

* Andrew Culp, assistant superintendent, Marysville Exempted Village School District.

* Dr. Quint Gage, elementary principal, Bexley City School District.

* George Joseph, executive director of administrative services, Worthington City School District.

* Kimberly Pietsch Miller, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning, Loveland City School District.

* Tracey Miller, director of secondary education, Dublin City School District.

* Todd Meyer, high school principal, Olentangy Local School District.

Culp, Gage and Joseph interviewed with the board Monday, April 14, and the other candidates are scheduled to interview Wednesday, April 16.

The board will meet April 16 to further narrow the list.

Truett said the board expects to make an informal decision April 19 about a hire after it holds a final 90-minute interview with each finalist.

If that happens, a special meeting will be scheduled to hold the formal vote, Truett said.

That public meeting could be scheduled early next week, he said.
