Two finalists for superintendent of the Nampa School District will be interviewed Monday by the school board.

The finalists are Glenn Gelbrich, superintendent of Alaska’s Juneau School, and David Peterson, North Mason School District superintendent in Belfair, Wash.

The public is invited to meet Gelbrich and Peterson during a reception 6:30 p.m., Monday at the district office, 619 S. Canyon St. Superintendent Search Committee Co-chairs Rich Hagood and Molly Lenty will emcee the reception. which will include short PowerPoint presentations from each finalist, and an opportunity for the public to meet and talk with the finalists.

During their visit to Nampa, the finalists also will tour schools and meet with district, school, and teacher leaders.

In the fall, the Nampa board of trustees appointed a community-based Superintendent Search Committee to help find the leader who will replace Interim Superintendent Pete Koehler, who will retire in June.

Both finalists are veteran administrators and educators with more than 30 years of experience in education acquired in small and large school districts. They both began their careers as classroom teachers at the elementary level and advanced to become principals and central office administrators before becoming district superintendents.
