Cary, N.C. — The Wake County Public School System is inviting the public to meet the three final candidates hoping to lead the state's largest school district.
Dr. Dana Bedden, superintendent of the Irving Independent School System in Irving, Texas; Ann Clark, deputy superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools; and Dr. James Merrill, superintendent of Virginia Beach City Public Schools in Virginia Beach, Va., are visiting Wake County Tuesday.
The public is invited to a community forum from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh. Candidates will take questions from the audience.
On Wednesday, Bedden, Clark and Merrill will meet with the Board of Education for a final interview.
Board Chairman Keith Sutton has said he hopes to have a new schools chief in place by July 1.
