Mason City school board to evaluate superintendent candidates tonight

MASON CITY – The Mason City school board will go into closed session tonight at a work shop to evaluate candidates for superintendent.

The closed session under Iowa law is to evaluate the professional competency of individuals being considered for appointment as superintendent “where needless and irreparable injury may be caused to their reputation and where the individuals have requested a closed session.”  There were 15 applicants and 13 are being considered.  Once that number is whittled down to 2, more information about those candidates can be disseminated.

According to a source close to the school board, any new superintendent will likely be paid much less than the former superintendent, Anita Micich, who cost the school district upwards of $290,000 per year in overall compensation, including a salary of $192,985.

Mike Penca was named as interim superintendent earlier this summer after Micich and the school board came to an agreement for her to leave her position.

Sources tell NIT that a pending audit of the school district could ensnare Micich back here in Mason City if the audit doesn’t come back clean.  “You will want to watch for that,” the high-ranking source said.  “She might not be done up here yet.”
