The district received 34 applications for the position that will be vacated by Stan Slessor at the end of the school year.

The application deadline was Jan. 14. The School Board's personnel subcommittee will meet today to narrow down those applicants to about half a dozen

The board will formally approve those finalists in a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. today at the high school.
