Altoona (WQOW) – The Altoona school board has opened discussion on the next steps in hiring a new superintendent.
Interim Superintendent Ron Walsh has been serving in Connie Biedron’s place after she resigned amid controversy last year. The board is now looking into hiring firms to find candidates for the job.
School board president Robin Elvig told News 18 that the board wants to get opinions from parents and hopes for a good, long-term candidate.
“To have someone who is a strong leader, who is a good listener and who really will listen to all aspects, all parts of the community,” Elvig told News 18.
Elvig said the board will continue this discussion in their upcoming meetings.
