Culp makes short list for Grandview job

The Grandview Heights school board held interviews last week with six semifinalists for the district superintendent position and planned to interview two or three finalists Saturday, April 19.

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

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

The semifinalists are:

* Andrew Culp, assistant superintendent, Marysville Ex-empted Village School District.

* Quint Gage, elementary school 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 April 14, and the other candidates interviewed Wednesday, April 16.

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

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

In that case, a special meeting would be scheduled to hold the formal vote, Truett said.

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