The Keokuk School Board could soon see a list of potential superintendent candidates.
Business Manager Greg Reynolds says applications will be accepted through July 9. He says Ray & Associates (Cedar Rapids, IA) will review the applicants in the hopes of presenting a final list to the board by July 23rd.
“They are then going to interview (candidates) the following week,” says Reynolds. “I believe the 30th and 31st (of July) is the plan.”
Keokuk hopes to have a new superintendent in place before the start of the school year.
(L to R) 4th Ward Alderman Larry Mortimer, Alderman At-Large John Helenthal, Mayor Tom Marion, City Clerk Barb Barnes and Alderman At-Large Zane Zirkel test out their new iPads during Thursday night's workshop.
Thursday night’s Keokuk City Council meeting had a feeling of Christmas as aldermen opened the boxes containing their new iPads.
The city spent more than $6,000 to purchase the devices for the nine city council members along with the Mayor, City Clerk, Police Chief, Fire Chief, Public Works Director, and Community Development Director.
The iPads are for the specific position or office-holder, not the individuals. There is a device for the 3rd Ward Alderman, not for Ron Payne, for example.
