Education > District is in the midst of receiving applications to replace Warnock

A committee assigned to select a new high school principal could possibly make a selection by April.
“By spring break we will be announcing who the next high school principal is,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gene Schmidt said.
The application process closes this Friday, and then they will begin the selection process, Schmidt said.
“We’ve formed a principal-selection committee that consists mostly of my interoffice team and will feature a screening process that will include students and staff members from the community,” Schmidt said to the Los Alamos School Board at a recent meeting.
The process will also include two interview panels and a series of community afternoon and evening events where members of the community will be able to meet the candidates in a social setting. There will also be a separate reception hosted by the high school’s student council, where the council’s officers will be able to interview them as well.
Schmidt also said he welcomed a role for the school board and wanted to hear suggestions from the board about how they could improve the interview/hiring process.
School board secretary Matt Williams suggested to Schmidt that he would want Schmidt to play a more active role in the hiring process than just be the one who announces who the final selection will be.
