The Charlottesville School Board has rounded its candidates list down to three people for the new superintendent, who will replace the retiring Bill Symons. They are: Jean Murray, Albemarle’s assistant superintendent for instruction; James Bughsley, deputy superintendent for Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Schools in North Carolina; and Kriner Cash, superintendent for Martha’s Vineyards Public Schools. Due to the great amount of pressure on the school board to appoint an African-American superintendent, it’s worth pointing out that the two male candidates, Bughsley and Cash, are both black. The board will pick from these three by Monday. Kate Andrews has the story in today’s Progress.
