Jerry Weast, the current Montgomery County Schools superindent, has held is position for 12 years. His contract expires June 30.
The search for a new head of schools began soon after current superintendent, Jerry Weast, announced his retirement in August. Weast, one of the nation's longest-serving superintendents, will end 12 years of service when his contract expires June 30.
With the help of a search firm, board members reviewed the applications of 30 candidates from 15 states -- at least 18 are currently serving as superintendents. Earlier in April, three finalists were chosen and interviewed by a community committee.
Monday night, the board is expected to make a conditional appointment of a new superintendent, contingent on a final contract and written approval of the State Superintendent of Schools.
