Coupeville School District finalists released, meetings set

Coupeville School District narrowed its superintendent search to three finalists.

The community has an opportunity to meet the candidates later this month during a series of community meeting.

The three finalists are Pam Estvold, current assistant superintendent for Anacortes School District, Russ Pickett, current superintendent with the Tenino School District and Jim Shank, current superintendent with the Juab School District in Utah.

Each finalist will meet with district administrators and staff, have lunch with high school students, be interviewed by the board and meet with community members.

Community meetings are 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, Thursday, Feb. 21 and Friday, Feb. 22.

Everyone who meets the finalists will have an opportunity to provide comments to the district board of directors.

Coupeville School District Board of Directors will hold a special meeting in an executive session 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25 at the Coupeville Elementary School library to review feedback, interview results and overall qualifications.

The regular board meeting will begin 6:30 p.m. in the same location.
