Clark will act as ACS superintendent until interim steps in

Assistant superintendent has no plans to go for the permanent role

(Continued)

“It’s not just a matter of coming to a decision this Tuesday night (at the monthly school board meeting),” he said.

The board will have to give notice of and hold a public hearing on the interim’s proposed contract before a person is even appointed in a public vote.

Long, who’s on the interim search board, said members have interviewed a couple of candidates and have a sense of the “direction we want to go, but at this point, nothing is finalized.”

Whoever takes over temporarily — with the possibility of becoming a permanent fixture — will be here until the end of the school year.

As for ACS’ next superintendent, Long said, the board will be opening the application process up to the public soon and expects to make an announcement by spring break — after another public vote for approval.

The Indiana School Board Association is helping the ACS board with its search by providing free guidance. When Chow was hired, the board used a university search firm, Long said.

This time, members wanted to do it on their own, he added.

The school board, he said, is looking for someone who’s “very dynamic,” preferably has superintendent experience and would get out into the community. Major systematic changes are not on the list, he added, as the district is looking for stability.

“We want to make sure we get somebody good,” Long said, and that’d be hard to do by Jan. 1.
