The search for the new Crook County School Superintendent is way ahead of schedule. School Board Vice Chair Patty Norris says they have gotten about 20 applicants and are in the middle of the screening process now. Norris says the candidate they are looking for must be able to deal with budgeting issues:  "Certainly the issues that are paramount for us, going forward to the next few years anyway are dealing with the financial situation that is facing all schools nationwide. And making sure that we come out of that without too much pain. And along with that, we're looking for someone who can help us improve our student achievement and transition to the new standards." Norris says the screening committee will present their reviews to the Board on February 14th. Then they will develop a short list and from that they will do more in-depth screening. They hope to get the list down to two or three candidates by the end of February.   A selection should be made by the end of March.
