Members of the Lincoln County High School Site-Based Decision Making Council have been unable to find what they consider to be a qualified applicant for the school's vacant principal position.
"None of the applicants fit all of the criteria that has been set," said Lincoln County Schools Superintendent Teresa Wallace.
The position has been vacant since Jan. 2, when former principal Ty Howard took an administrative post with the school district.
Wallace said six applications were reviewed at the council's meeting in late March, but none met the criteria set forth early in the search by the council.
The criteria include five years' experience as an administrator. None of the six applicants came close to that kind of experience, Wallace said.
