Bellevue School District to Meet Tuesday to Discuss Superintendent Finalists

The Bellevue School District may make a decision as early as Tuesday night regarding who the board chooses to replace former Superintendent Amalia Cudeiro.

The Bellevue School District plans to meet Tuesday regarding the evaluations of the three finalists to replace former Superintendent Amalia Cudeiro.

The three finalists who visited the district last week were of the Missoula County Public Schools in Montana,  the superintendent of the Naperville Community Unit School District in Illinois, and , superintendent of the North Clackamas School District in Oregon.

The district posted videos of the finalists' public forums on its website.

According to a public notice sent out by the district, the board will meet in executive session at 7:30 p.m. in the Wilburton Instructional Service Center, 12241 Main Street in Bellevue, in an executive session -- which is private by law -- and then reconvene in an open session "to discuss each individual Board member’s assessment of the candidates, vote on the candidates, and may authorize the District to enter into contract negotiations with the successful candidate."

Board president Paul Mills said last week at the beginning of the third day of finalist interviews that the board may decide that more work such as candidate district site visits may be necessary. It is not a foregone conclusion that one of the three candidates will be the district's ultimate choice, and the board is willing to continue the search if the finalists don't fit the bill, he said.

"We will need to make a decision about who is the best person for Bellevue," Mills said. "We will not settle."
