The Carson City School District Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting beginning at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday to interview the two finalists for the superintendent position, then resume its regular board meeting at 7 p.m. to discuss and take possible action on offering one of the candidates the position.
Finalists Andrew Feuling, current district fiscal services officer, and Dr. John Goldhardt, superintendent of New Hampshire’s Manchester School District, will go before the board Tuesday morning and make a presentation on the topic, “Carson City School District is currently refreshing its Strategic Plan. Please present your understanding of the District’s Strategic Plan and identify the ways you may strengthen it.”
The candidates also will answer questions presented by the board.
Goldhardt is scheduled to appear from 8:30 to 10 a.m., and Feuling is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. to noon.
The board will then recess and reconvene at 7 p.m., with Superintendent Richard Stokes to provide his report, followed by board reports and member comments and association reports.
There will be a discussion and possible action on the Carson City Schools Foundation bylaws presented by foundation President Steve Reynolds and Secretary Casey Gilles to approve a disbursement exceeding $10,000 to Western Nevada College’s JumpStart program to cover student textbooks for the 2021-22 school year.
Following public comment, the board will then hold a discussion and possible action to offer the position of superintendent for the Carson City School District effective July 1, 2022.
The board previously had narrowed its selection to Feuling and Goldhardt from its
list of six candidates in January and held a discussion at its Feb. 8 meeting about potential scenarios for meet-and-greets, school tours or surveys with its finalists. Ultimately, the board decided a simple interview would be the most inclusive process for everyone.
According to Manchester publication Manchester Ink Link, it was announced that Goldhardt resigned from his post as of 5 p.m. Feb. 11 and would remain an employee of the district through June 30 this year. Goldhardt had previously said in his interviews with the Carson City School Board he was interested in relocating out West to be closer to family after the birth of his first grandchild.
The special meeting will be in the Robert Crowell board room in the Carson City Community Center, 815 E. William St.
