June may bring Conneaut’s next superintendent

CONNEAUT — The search for the Conneaut Area City Schools district’s next superintendent begins next week and could conclude sometime in June if timetables stay intact.

Cris Newcomb, Board of Education president, outlined the panel’s process to replace Kent Houston during Wednesday’s regular meeting. Houston, superintendent since 2008, submitted his resignation due to retirement last month. It takes effect at the end of the year.

The search kicks off Thursday, when a job posting is advertised in various education-related venues, Newcomb said. The board will accept applications until May 14, he said. A first round of interviews is scheduled for May 27-28, while a second round of meetings will be conducted in early June, Newcomb said.

The Ashtabula County Education Service Center will assist in the search. John Rubesich, ESC superintendent, said the organization will help screen candidates and handle other details. The school board plans to meet with Rubesich on May 21, Newcomb said.

“We’re going to have a very busy month ahead of us,” he said.
