No decision was made Monday on who will be the next superintendent of Clarke Community School District.

Clarke Community School Board postponed the superintendent selection item on Monday’s school-board agenda. Clarke School Board President Gerard Linskens said the board is “finalizing further discussions” during a phone interview with the Osceola Sentinel-Tribune this morning.

East Union Superintendent Dr. Pam Vogel is a top five finalist for the position. Other finalists are Clarke Elementary Principal Brandon Eighmy, Audubon Superintendent Brett Gibbs, Sigourney/Tri-County Superintendent Benita Gonzales and Clarke interim Superintendent Steve Seid.

Clarke Community School Board will have a special meeting noon Wednesday with the goal of selecting a new superintendent.

“It has been a long process,” Linskens said. “We can’t say anything at this time, but Wednesday, we will.”

The new Clarke superintendent would assume duties beginning July 1, 2013.
