B-T superintendent search continues

Neither finalist chosen for B-T schools superintendent job, new candidates to be interviewed

The search for a new leader in the Blair-Taylor School District will continue on longer than originally planned.

Neither of the two finalists for the district’s open superintendent position will be offered the job, and the district is back to interviews with other candidates, the Times learned on Tuesday.

Blair-Taylor School Board President Troy Tenneson said the district has decided not to pursue G-E-T High School principal Troy White or Sarah Tobiason of the Decorah Community School District in Decorah, Iowa for the job.

Tenneson declined comment on what prevented the district from offering one of the finalists the position but said new applicants have emerged for the post, adding that interviews for these candidates were scheduled for May 11.

White has been the principal at G-E-T High School since 2011 and previously worked as a principal and teacher in the Manawa School District. Tobiason has been the elementary principal and district director in Decorah since 2017.

The district originally planned to announce its superintendent pick April 25 and have them start June 1, the Times previously reported.
