Two Nebraska school administrators are the finalists to be the next superintendent of Westside Community Schools.
Mike Lucas, superintendent of York Public Schools, and Melissa Poloncic, superintendent of Douglas County West Community Schools, were selected after two days of interviews with the school board.
The district made the announcement Wednesday night after a vote of the board.
The board held interviews with the four finalists on Tuesday and Wednesday. The other two finalists were from Utah and Nevada.
Lucas and Poloncic will go through a second round of interviews with students, staff, parents, community members and the board on Jan. 17.
The board will select the new superintendent at its Jan. 21 meeting.
Current Westside Superintendent Blane McCann, who has led the district since 2012, will retire at the end of the school year.
McCann’s salary is $221,740 a year, plus benefits.
