The two finalists to be Westside's next superintendent have been announced.
On Wednesday, the Westside Community Schools Board of Education selected Dr. Mike Lucas and Dr. Melissa Poloncic as the two finalists. Dr. Lucas is currently the superintendent of York Public Schools and Dr. Poloncic is the superintendent of Douglas County West Community Schools.
The two were among four finalists who visited Westside Community Schools on Tuesday and Wednesday for interviews with board members. Based on those meetings, the board selected their top two candidates.
Drs. Lucas and Poloncic have been invited to tour the district and participate in a second round of interviews with students, staff, parents, community members, and board members on January 17th. The interviews are open to the public and will be shared live online via the school district's Facebook page.
A final vote is expected to happen at the school board meeting on January 21st at 6:30 PM. The person selected will take over after Superintendent Dr. Blane McCann retires at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
