Superintendent interview panels being formed

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The Roaring Fork School District Re-1 board is setting up three interview panels for community members, parents and students from Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and Basalt to be part of the superintendent candidate interviews later this month.

Three semi-finalists for the position are to be announced the week of April 23, and interviews are to be conducted on April 30 and May 1 and 2.
