The search for the next Juneau School District superintendent is going to take at least a little bit longer.
While the Juneau School Board carried out its previously scheduled executive session on Wednesday, the planned action item for deciding the next superintendent was rescheduled for noon on Friday, according to the district’s administrative assistant Jessica Richmond.
The three finalists for the position are Frank Hauser, Carlee Simon and Thom Peck, who participated in a public forum Monday evening at Thunder Mountain High School.
Hauser is an Alaska educator with 25 years of experience, Simon currently works with Families Deserve Inclusive Schools and is former superintendent of Alachua County Public Schools in Florida and Peck has served for 35 years as a Montana educator currently in his sixth year as Lewistown Public Schools superintendent.
The chosen candidate will replace outgoing Juneau School District Superintendent Bridget Weiss. Weiss, a past Alaska Superintendent of the Year, announced in October 2022 she would be leaving the position at the end of June.
