The Lower Kuskokwim School Board met in executive session on Thursday, Jan. 23 to narrow its search down to the final candidates for LKSD's new superintendent. Before meeting behind closed doors, the board developed a plan for three days of visits, interviews, and tours of some of the district’s schools with the finalists for the superintendent’s job. The board also decided to invite its two student representatives to participate in the board’s interviews with the finalists.
This fall, current LKSD superintendent Dan Walker announced his intention to retire after 28 years at the district. He came up throught the ranks, serving as a principal before taking the helm of the sprawling Y-K Delta school district.
