Altoona (WQOW) – We will soon learn who is in the running for the Altoona superintendent position.
Communications director for the district Joyce Orth tells News 18 there are currently six people in the pool of candidates. The board will interview those six candidates Saturday and narrow them down to three.
Then, on Monday, each candidate will be interviewed twice more.
First, by a selected group of students, parents, community members, support staff and administrators.
They’ll give feedback to the school board who will then interview the three finalists again in the afternoon.
Orth says the board plans to offer a contract to the person they select on Monday. However, it is unclear when the selection will be made public.
The board fired now-former Superintendent Dan Peggs in mid-March. He is facing federal charges of sex trafficking a minor and production of child porn.
