After interviewing five candidates for the Superintendent position last week, the Cedar Springs Board of Education narrowed down their choice to two candidates–Assistant Superintentdent David Cairy, and Laura VanDuyne, executive director of a special education consortium in Concord, California.
Final interviews will be on Wednesday, March 26, in the Hilltop Boardroom, with Cairy at 6 p.m. and VanDuyne at 7:30 p.m.
On Monday evening, March 24, the Board will do “site” visits to get a better idea of each candidate. Each candidate will select a team of people that they work with (administrators, staff, parents) to be present to be interviewed by the board. The board will ask those people questions to get a better snapshot of the candidate. Since VanDuyne is from California, her team will interviewed via Skype. Cairy’s team will be interviewed at 5 p.m. and VanDuyne’s at 6 p.m. Both are open to the public.
Final details of the process will be outlined by the board at their regular meeting, which follows at 7 p.m.
