So what's wrong with Los Alamos?

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

School board members question why only eight applicants responded to their nationwide search for a new superintendent for Los Alamos Public Schools. The number of applicants actually drops to seven, because one applicant was disqualified for submitting incomplete paperwork. “That’s the lowest I’ve ever seen,” consultant Wesley Lane said at Tuesday’s special school board meeting. “The superintendent job just isn’t as attractive as it used to be – the fun is gone.”Lane and the superintendent search committee mailed out 31 packets, 17 of which were in state and 14 out of state, including Arizona, Montana, Washington, Missouri, South Carolina, Utah, Iowa, Alaska, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Arkansas and Illinois. Of the eight who returned applications, six were in-state.
