School boss search nears end in Conneaut

CONNEAUT — Conneaut’s Board of Education will conduct the last in a scheduled series of executive sessions aimed at finding a new superintendent Thursday afternoon at Biscotti’s Restaurant in the Port of Conneaut.

Two applicants will be invited to discuss the position further with the board, said John Rubesich, Ashtabula County Educational Service Center superintendent. The county’s ESC is helping the board with the interview process. If the board settles on a candidate after Thursday’s talks, a contract could be prepared in a matter of days, Rubesich said.

Last week, board members interviewed nine people culled from a field of 19 applicants. Another executive session was held Monday.

Kent Houston, the Conneaut Area City Schools superintendent since July 2008, is resigning due to retirement at the end of the year.
