Cedar Falls Narrowing Search for Superintendent


By Ellen Kurt

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - The search for a new superintendent of Cedar Falls schools is moving ahead as the district's Board of Education meets in a private session to review applicants.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the board will meet Thursday night with representatives from an Omaha, Neb., consulting firm that will present a list of candidates who have applied for the job.

Board members say they want to narrow the field to five or fewer candidates during the meeting. Those making the cut will be invited to Cedar Falls for full-day interviews next week.

The board expects to make a decision on a new superintendent after the Memorial Day holiday.

The position has been vacant since Mike Wells resigned in February after he realized the board wouldn't renew his one-year contract.
