School board changes superintendent schedule

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. – The Douglas County School Board will be redoing its finalist selection of two superintendent candidates 4 p.m. April 21 at Douglas High School.

Concerns that Wednesday’s meeting may have violated the Nevada Open Meeting Law prompted the redo. During that meeting, board members took three separate straw polls and in the end came up with Dave Jensen, assistant superintendent of Humboldt County School District, and Mary Bull, former superintendent of Vallejo City Unified School District. However, in the final poll of that meeting, the board did not disclose who voted for whom or which candidate received more votes.

Because of the redo, roundtable interviews scheduled for April 21 have been pushed back to April 26. Collaborative interviews with candidates, board members, principals, teachers and other staff will be 9 a.m. to noon and 3 to 6 p.m. at Douglas High School.

The meeting for final selection will be scheduled for a later date.
