Manchester Superintendent Search Down To Three Finalists

The search for a new superintendent of the Manchester School District is expected to wrap up this weekend.

The search committee announced the names of three finalists for the job this week.

Two – Debra Livingston and Maureen Ward – are from New Hampshire.

Livingston is the superintendent of the Fall Mountain Regional School District, which covers several towns in the southwestern part of the state.

And Ward heads the Franklin and Hill school districts.

The third finalist is Kriner Cash. He was previously superintendent of the Memphis City Schools, but stepped down from that position in January.

A public forum with the three finalists is scheduled for this evening at 6:30 at Memorial High School.

The search committee is scheduled to hold final interviews Saturday morning, and then make a decision later that day.

This is the second attempt at finding a replacement for outgoing Superintendent Thomas Brennan.

The search committee started over in April, after not being able to reach consensus on the first group of finalists.
