District 308 Board Interviewing Final Superintendent Candidates This Week
Meetings moved from Naperville restaurant to Oswego High School.
After canceling out-of-district meetings last week to interview the two final candidates to replace outgoing Superintendent Dan O’Donnell, the District 308 board will meet with the candidates Tuesday and Wednesday night at Oswego High School.
Board President Bill Walsh revealed at Monday night’s regular board meeting that 221 candidates from 36 states showed interest in the position through the district’s search firm Ray and Associates. Of those 221, 60 from 22 states applied. Ray and Associates brought the board 10 of those candidates.
Walsh said the board then narrowed that field to six and interviewed them earlier this month in closed session. Those six were then narrowed to the final two. Tuesday night's meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. and Wednesday's will be held at 7 p.m. in the OHS community room.
The board is quickly running out of time to fill the position, as O’Donnell’s last day on the job will be June 30.
The board canceled last week’s final interviews at Biaggi’s Italian restaurant in Naperville after constituents expressed displeasure with the board for planning meetings outside the district.
