The 14 names were released as part of the agenda for the Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday:

  • Mike Barton
  • Cody O. Claver
  • Mark Coleman
  • Jhone M. Ebert
  • Robert A. Gerye

  • John S. Haynal
  • Mollie Ann Holt
  • Timothy S. Hughes
  • April Lealia Key
  • Antonio Rael

The school district announced four finalists for the position earlier this month, but the search was delayed slightly when parents and community members expressed concern that no local candidates were included.

One of those four candidates, former Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy, reportedly withdrew his name from consideration last week.

According to the agenda for Thursday's meeting, trustees will decide who among the 14 candidates will be interviewed at a special board meeting April 27.

The three current candidates are Donald Haddad, the Superintendent of St. Vrain Valley Schools north of Denver; Shonda Huery Hardman, a consultant with Franklin Covey and a former school administrator in Houston; and Jesus Jara, the Deputy Superintendent for the Orange County Public School System in Orlando.
