Following interviews by two committees of six semi-finalists on Tuesday, April 22, two finalists have been selected for the Provo High School principal position.
Karen Brown, assistant principal at Provo High School is one of the finalists. Stacey Briggs, formerly of Provo High School and now principal of Ogden High School is the other finalist.
The “finals” will be on Thursday April 24. Students will interact with Karen Brown at 2:30 and with Stacey Briggs at 3:00. Parents and staff will be able to attend community forums on Thursday night, with Stacey Briggs at 6:00 p.m. and Karen Brown at 6:30. The community forums will be in the Provo High School Commons area.
The district received 29 applications, and following an extensive paper-screening process, narrowed the field to 6 candidates. Those 6 candidates were interviewed on Tuesday April 22 by two committees. One committee was composed of 4 PHS staff, 4 PHS parents and 2 PHS students. The other committee was composed of a school-level administrator, two district administrators, and a board member. The committees compared notes and quickly determined the two finalists.
Superintendent Keith Rittel expects to officially announce the new principal of Provo High School on or by Tuesday, April 29.
