SISTERS, OR -- Sisters must now start looking for a new superintendent of schools. Jim Golden has just accepted the superintendent's job with the Albany School district. He will start with the new district on July first. Sisters School Board Chair Don Hedrick tells KBND News he's sorry to see Golden go. "Jim was good fit for Sisters and it's going to be difficult to find someone who was as good as Jim has been for the district."
Golden has been Sisters' Superintendent for five years. The school board plans to meet on Friday to come up with plans on how to move forward with the search for a new leader. "We have to explore several options; we could do the search ourselves, or we could hire a firm to do it or approve an interim Superintendent. There are several options we need to talk about." They hope to have someone in place by this summer.
