Loveland Superintendent, Dr. John Marschhausen is among five finalist to replace Dale McVey as the next superintendent of the Hilliard School District.Their decision is expected in March.
The Hilliard City Schools Board of Education announced yesterday that they will interview five candidates for the superintendent vacancy they posted through the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio (ESCCO) earlier this school year. On October 11, Superintendent Dale A. McVey announced his intention to retire effective June 30, 2013. He is finishing his 35th year in education, including 15 years with Hilliard City Schools.
The Board received 24 applications for the position and the entire Hilliard Schools board will begin interviewing the top five candidates on February 13. “We received a strong pool of candidates and we’re very pleased with the level of interest in our system,” said Teater. “This speaks volumes about the type of school district we have built and the level of support we are fortunate to have from our community.”
The five candidates that the board will interview are:
- Paul Craft, superintendent, Delaware City Schools;
- Steven Estepp, executive director of K-12 curriculum and instruction, Hilliard City Schools;
- John Marschhausen, Ph.D., superintendent, Loveland City Schools
- Michael Sawyers, acting superintendent of public instruction for Ohio; and,
- David Stewart, high school principal, Hilliard City Schools.
The board intends to complete the interview process and take action to employ the next superintendent at the March 11, 2013 meeting.
Hilliard is northwest of the city of Columbus.
Marschhausen told Loveland Magazine this afternoon, "Any comment would be premature."
