The Vancouver Public Schools board of directors narrowed the selection for superintendent to two candidates after meeting in executive session on Tue., Feb. 23.
Finalists for superintendent are:
• Dr. Kenneth (Chris) Hurst, superintendent, Othello School District, Othello, WA
• Dr. Jeff Snell, superintendent, Camas School District, Camas, WA
“We would have been thrilled to hire any one of the four semifinalists, and we appreciate the time they spent in our interview process,” said Kyle Sproul, board president. “Each candidate participated in a public webinar in addition to virtual interviews with the board and a stakeholder team. Based on the feedback we received and their impressive credentials, Dr. Hurst and Dr. Snell have been invited for a final round of interviews with the board.”
The board will hold in-person interviews with the two finalists on March 3. The board will convene a public meeting and then recess to an executive session for the interviews with possible action to follow. The interviews will not be open to the public.
