West Fargo sets dates for candidate interviews

The West Fargo School Board will begin interviews next week with the district’s final four superintendent candidates.

Board members will meet Thursday with former Fargo Superintendent David Flowers, currently superintendent of Hutchinson (Kan.) Public Schools.

On April 19, they meet with Northern Cass (Hunter, N.D.) Superintendent Allen Burgad and Perham-Dent (Minn.) Superintendent Tamara Uselman.

They wrap up interviews April 20 with West Fargo Assistant Superintendent Louise Dardis.

The four candidates were selected this week from a pool of 19 applicants.

After the board’s interviews are completed this month, students, staff and community members who participated in February input meetings will then interview the finalists.

By early May, the board plans to make an offer to the successor to Superintendent Dana Diesel Wallace, who is leaving the district after four years due to “new opportunities.”

The next superintendent starts on July 1 and will earn a salary ranging from $140,000 to $160,000.
