The Monroe City Schools superintendent search committee began screening the 19 applications for the position on Wednesday after agreeing to a schedule and a final evaluation tool during the committee's Monday meeting.
After delaying the superintendent search process last week, the committee agreed to a new schedule that would result in all applications reviewed with the evaluation tool, or rubric, by Feb. 15.
According to the new schedule, the committee plans to submit a list of three to five finalists for the position on March 5 during a joint meeting between the committee and the Monroe City School Board.
Committee chairman Sandie Lollie said March 5 also marks the final stage of the committee's involvement in the search for the new superintendent. After that point, the School Board will commence their own interviews with the finalists.
"We want to get this process started and not get too far behind," Lollie said. "We're looking at a 10-day window to screen applications."
