Dawson-Bryant BOE to begin superintendent screening Monday

New chief to take job July 1

 

COAL GROVE — The Lawrence County Educational Service Center has stopped accepting applications for Dawson-Bryant Schools superintendent and will present the list of qualified individuals to the board of education Monday.

James Payne, county superintendent, said there are 11 applicants from all over Ohio who applied to the job currently occupied by Dennis DeCamp, who announced his retirement Feb. 21.

“We have local, regional and state-wide candidates who applied for this position,” Payne said. “We will meet on Monday to screen the applicants, review their qualifications and set up an interview schedule.”

Payne said he is doubtful all 11 applications will make the cut for interviews, but all are qualified for the position.

The search for the new superintendent is still in its early stages, Payne said.

The new superintendent is set to begin work July 1.
