The search for a 2012-13 Danville High School principal is well underway, though administrators will take applications for the vacant position until Wednesday.
So far, 12 people have applied for the position, said Danville Independent Schools Superintendent Carmen Coleman. Members of the Danville High school-based council interviewed four of those candidates and expect to conduct more interviews very soon.
On Thursday, Coleman and the school-based council will meet and review any new applications received. They will then decide who else to interview for the position.
The principal’s desk became vacant when Ed McKinney was promoted to work as director of pupil personnel in the school district’s central office. That position became open when veteran educator Chuck Stallard announced his retirement a few weeks ago.
