Education > School board whittles down potential candidates to the ‘semifinalists’

By Tris DeRoma

The Los Alamos School Board recently met with members of its superintendent search team, hoping to narrow down its list of 14 candidates even further.
According to School Board Secretary Matt Williams, the board succeeded in narrowing the list down some more, though he could not say by how much or give any other details about their Feb. 12 meeting.
“I would just say we had our list of quarterfinalists, and we have whittled the list down to semifinalists,” Williams said.
The meeting was led in part by Ryan Ray, the executive director of Ray & Associates, the school executive recruitment firm hired by the board to help it in its search.
All persons involved in the search have signed a confidentiality agreement so as not to reveal the identities, or ways to identify, candidates that have applied for the search.
“They all have very good jobs already,” said Ray in response to a question from the press about why it was important to conceal the identity of the candidates applying.
At the beginning of the meeting, Ray distributed a document detailing the firm’s findings in its efforts to help the school board narrow down its list of candidates.
In all, 334 candidates applied for the job.
Only 62 made it to Ray’s initial list of candidates for the position.
