Robbinsdale superintendent search down to two candidates

It’s not getting anywhere near the attention that a superintendent search in Minneapolis or (coming soon) St. Paul gets, but Robbinsdale school district is getting close to selecting a new leader.

Two finalists were selected Wednesday:

• Dr. Aldo Sicolii, assistant superintendent of Burnsville-Eagan-Savage District 191.

• Dr. Carlton Jenkins, executive director of secondary schools for the School District of Beloit (Wis.).

Members of the community can to meet Jenkins from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Sicoli from 5 to 6 p.m. next Thursday at the Education Service Center boardroom, 4148 Winnetka Ave. N., New Hope.

Each finalist will spend a day touring the school district, meeting with staff members and the community, and interviewing with the school board.

The interviews are open to the public, though no public comment is allowed. The board  is expected to select a new superintendent Thursday evening.

There were 27 applicants. Current Superintendent Stan F. Mack II is retiring at the end of the school year after serving Robbinsdale Area Schools for nine years.
