The Wamego School Board is inching closer to having a new superintendent in place.

Four special meetings are planned next week for interviews to be conducted by the board with finalists, after the application period closed recently. Meetings are scheduled Monday through Thursday and will be entirely in executive session.

Each candidate will tour the district buildings prior to a dinner and interview with the board at 6 p.m. The candidates’ names are being withheld until the mornings of their respective visits, with the district also planning to release brief bios on each candidate. A special meeting will be conducted Friday, if necessary.

The candidate search is being overseen by the Kansas Association of School Boards. A decision from the board could be announced as early as next Friday.

Greg Mann is serving as the Wamego USD 320 interim superintendent through the end of the school year, following the resignation of former superintendent Tim Winter.
