School board is still busy with search

Education > New members of board will come in next month

By Tris DeRoma

While Los Alamos Public Schools wrapped up 2014 relatively neatly, there were a couple of loose ends that have yet to be resolved, ones that when they are resolved will have a far ranging impact on the lives of Los Alamos residents.
Depending on how one of those is resolved, the outcome will surely impact their schoolchildren as well including students from outside the district — the Los Alamos School Board’s search for a new superintendent. The search probably won’t be completed until March or April.
While the Los Alamos School Board could have probably wrapped the search up sooner, early on they decided to take advantage of the superintendent’s offer to stay until the end of the school year to provide a smoother transition for not only the outgoing and incoming superintendent, but for the board as well.
LASB President Judy Bjarke-McKenzie said she is hopeful that with all the work the board and the community has put into the search, they are going to find a candidate everyone can agree on.
“I expect we’re going to find a very well-qualified superintendent for our district,” Bjarke-McKenzie said. “We have so many people from the community involved in this search that we are going to find the perfect person.
