USD 421 schedules interviews with three superintendent finalists
LYNDON, Kan. – The USD 421 Board of Education has announced that three candidates have been selected for interviews for the district’s superintendent vacancy. Candidates selected for interviews are Troy Damman, of Downs, Kan., Adam McDaniel, Onaga, Kan., and Jeff Jones, Ransom, Kan.
Interviews are scheduled to be conducted this week, with stakeholder groups to have the opportunity to meet the final candidates and submit input to the board about each of them. The board intends to make a selection by March 20.
Lyndon USD 421 retained the services of McPherson & Jacobson LLC to assist in conducting their search. The consultants reviewed, screened, and conducted background checks on 17 applicants. On March 7, 2017, the consultants presented the applicants to the board of education during a special board meeting and provided them detailed background information on each applicant. The board selected three candidates as finalists.
After a superintendent has been hired, McPherson & Jacobson will facilitate a board-superintendent workshop to assist in the establishment of performance objectives for the new superintendent.
