3 finalists announced for Highline Public Schools superintendent job

The interim superintendent of Seattle Public Schools, who has said she doesn’t want the permanent job there, is one of three finalists to become Highline’s next superintendent, according to an announcement from the district late today:

The school board has named three finalists in its search for Highline’s next superintendent. They are:

Dr. Susan Enfield
Dr. David Engle
Dr. Joshua Garcia

Biographical information is posted at www.highlineschools.org.

As part of the interview process, each candidate will spend a full day in Highline, meeting staff, parents, and community members. Each day will culminate in a public forum, where the candidate will answer questions from the audience.

Public forums will be held at the Burien City Council Chambers at 400 SW 152nd Street on February 22, 23, and 24, 6:00 – 7:15 p.m.

People who can’t be present at the forums can watch it live on channel 21 in Burien or on the internet. Viewers will be able to send in questions via email or Twitter. Video of the forums will also be posted online, so people can watch it later.

Each candidate’s day-long visit in Highline will include a breakfast with community leaders; a school visit; meetings with principals, senior leaders, and an advisory committee made up of staff, parents, and community members; and a final interview with the school board. The board will review feedback generated in the public forums and by the other groups who have met the candidate before making a final decision.

The board expects to announce the new superintendent by March 1.

Enfield also is in the running to lead Bellevue’s district, according to our partners at the Seattle Times.
