The Dickinson Public School Board has narrowed down its two final candidates for the position of superintendent of the district to two finalist candidates:

Dr. Shon Hocker, currently superintendent in the Big Horn School District of Cowley, Wyoming and Matthew Cheeseman, who is superintendent of Perquimans County Schools in Hertford, North Carolina.

More information will come out in the days ahead. A regular school board meeting will be held on Monday and a special meeting was scheduled for April 20, on which date both finalists will be interviewed. Tentatively on April 19 there will be a public forum where the community will be able to meet and give their impression of the candidates. The final interviews will be open to the public.

The final decision will be announced the week following those interviews.
