The second of three finalists for Oak Ridge Schools superintendent will visit the city on Thursday.
Dan Lawson, superintendent of Tullahoma City Schools in Tullahoma, Tenn., will be at a “meet and greet” session at the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce from 11:30-12:30 p.m. Thursday.
As part of his tour, he could also visit Willow Brook Elementary School and the Oak Ridge Preschool, Board of Education Chair Keys Fillauer said Monday.
The first finalist, Roger Collins, toured Oak Ridge on Friday.
The third finalist—Neyland Clark, superintendent of South Harrison Community Schools in Corydon, Ind.—could tour Oak Ridge later.
The search for a new superintendent started in June. Executive search firm Ray and Associates of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is helping the Oak Ridge Board of Education select a new school leader.
The current superintendent, Tom Bailey, is retiring at the end of the year after 10 years on the job. Former Oak Ridge Superintendent Bob Smallridge could serve as interim superintendent until a new superintendent is selected.
