Gallatin County Superintendent of Schools to Interview Bozeman School District Trustee Applicants

Gallatin County Superintendent of Schools Office

For immediate release: June 9, 2021

The application process/timeline for appointing a replacement trustee for the Bozeman School District No. 7 Board of Trustees was posted on the Gallatin County website on May 25 and had a 10-day submission window (until June 8) for any interested individuals. During that time, the Gallatin County Superintendent of Schools Office received 11 requests for applications. A total of six completed applications were returned by the deadline, including three from candidates in the May 4 election. All six were selected for an interview.

The interviews will be held in the Community Room on the third floor of the Gallatin County Courthouse on Friday, June 11, starting at 1 PM. The interviews are scheduled at 20-minute intervals and each will be limited to approximately 15 minutes. The Superintendent will ask the candidates questions and will use the same questions for each candidate. The order of the interviews was selected at random and the candidates and their interview times are listed below.

The interviews will be conducted before a “focus group” comprised of 15 individuals representing various interests in the Bozeman community (i.e., business, professional, service organizations, civic, military, etc.). The group also includes eight representatives from the Bozeman School District. Members of the focus group will be introduced on Friday and will provide written feedback to the Superintendent on each candidate. The focus group will not ask questions of the candidates.

The public is invited to attend the interviews, either in person or remotely, and may submit feedback by email to superintendentofschools@gallatin.mt.gov. The candidates’ applications may be examined in the Superintendent’s office during regular business hours. A copy of each application will also be posted in the Community Room for the public to view during the Friday interviews. Due to the fact that the applications contain sensitive information (i.e., contact information, employer, children’s names, etc.), copies will not be distributed to the public or posted online.
