SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH Former school chief among job applicants

Published: Thu, April 7, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.

Job interviews could start next week.

WARREN -- Dale Frederick, who was city schools superintendent for three years in the 1990s, wants to come back.

Frederick is among the job applicants seeking to replace Superintendent Betty English this summer.

The 25 people who are interested in being Warren's new schools superintendent have backgrounds ranging from large to small schools, law and consulting. Most are from Ohio.

Frederick left Warren City Schools in summer 1997 and spent two years as superintendent of Pittsburgh schools before moving to Arizona and furthering his educational career there, including a year as adjunct professor at Northern Arizona University. He is now a consultant.


Board of education members and an Ohio School Boards Association representative met Wednesday to try to trim the list of applicants to be interviewed, hoping to have the first five interviews next week. Board President Linda Metzendorf said they have much more work to do as they review all the names; likely there will be a few rounds of interviews.
