Greater Clark Interviews Five to Replace Superintendent Daeschner

 Candidates looking to become the next Superintendent of Greater Clark County Schools are being interviewed this week. Whoever takes over for current Superintendent Stephen Daescher will be expected to continue  the district’s success. Daeschner has improved student achievement since taking over in 2009; Greater Clark met all No Child Left Behind goals last year. But  Daeschner's nearly $230,000 salary makes him one of the highest paid superintendent’s in the state and that will likely be cut to $180,000.

A search committee will interview five candidates for the job this week and choose three who will face more interviews and a public comment period. The current group was chosen from 17 eligible applicants from around the country. The district expects to have Daeschner’s replacement hired by the end of this school year.
