Jefferson Co. seeks public input in search for new schools superintendent


On the heels of Redmond and Bend-La Pine, another Central Oregon school district will hire a new superintendent this school year.

Jefferson County 509J hired a national search firm last month to help find its new leader.

Now it’s looking for community members to join a group who will observe the preliminary interviews of candidates in late February.

Input from the panel will be used to narrow the list to three finalists.
