Godfrey-Lee — Following the interviews of three potential candidates for superintendent, the Godfrey-Lee Public Schools Board of Education invited two finalists for interviews on Wednesday, Nov. 17. Attendance at both interviews and input from the community continues to be encouraged.
Like the first round, both second round interviews are open to the public at Godfrey-Lee Early Childhood Center.
Finalist Ana Aleman-Putma’s, Grandville’s East Elementary School principal, interview is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Finalist Michael Burde’s, deputy superintendent at Kenowa Hills Public Schools, interview will follow at 7:45 p.m.
“This was a difficult decision, given the quality of our applicant pool, but we are encouraged by the genuine interest in our children by these visionary leaders,” said Board of Education President Eric Mockerman. “We are confident in the ability of each candidate to serve our community and will utilize a second interview to identify the best fit for the candidate profile we built with the voice of our students, staff, and community stakeholders.”
A new superintendent is expected to join the district by January 3.
