SCA down to 2 candidates for superintendent
CATAWISSA RR - By this time next week, the Southern Columbia Area School Board members could know who they want to hire to replace Superintendent Charles Reh when he retires next month.
A special meeting was held Monday night to interview the final two candidates: Paul Caputo, the current superintendent at Upper Dauphin Area School District, and Evan Williams, the former assistant superintendent at Waynesboro Area School District.
Members of the public were allowed to ask the two men questions at the 90-minute meeting, and the school board conducted its final interview in an executive session that followed. Each candidate was allowed 15 minutes to present themselves to the board and public, according to board President Mike Yeager.
Yeager said he wouldn't comment on the candidates, but said the interview process has been "very positive."
Eleven people applied for the position, and the board interviewed four candidates.
Caputo was hired at Upper Dauphin in June 2010. He was supervisor of curriculum, technology and federal programs in the North Schuylkill School District. Prior to that, he was a high school principal at Southern Columbia Area and Carbon County Area Vocational-Technical School.
Williams was a principal at Upper Dauphin High School.
Yeager said a vote could be made at the Dec. 10 meeting.
Reh's official retirement date is Feb. 4, 2013, but his last day on campus will be Jan. 18.
He was hired July 1, 2007.
