Members of the Meridian School Board met in special session Thursday night with an outside consultant who narrowed the search for a superintendent from 17 applicants down to 6.

The school board then chose 4 of those six to interview next week for the position.

"Wednesday night we will interview two applicants beginning at 5:30," said board president, Dr. Don Evans. "We'll interview one at 5:30 and then one at 7:00. And then Thursday night of next week, we will interview the other two applicants, beginning at 5:30 and the other at 7:00."

The names of the four candidates will not be announced until next week's interviews.

The school board also created a safety and security committee. Members say they did this in order to evaluate what areas of safety need improving.

    Hopefully they will pick the next superintendent based on qualifications and merit not on demographics.
