Superintendent seeks job in Montana

Glenn Gelbrich

Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich

Juneau School District Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich is one of nine candidates a Montana school system is considering for its top administrative job.

The Daily Inter Lake newspaper of Kalispell, Mont., reports that the Kalispell Public Schools Board of Trustees will select finalists from those nine candidates Tuesday. The position opens in July.

Gelbrich began as superintendent in Juneau in 2009.

News of his job search comes after consecutive years of flat education funding from the state, an overestimate in local student enrollment numbers with a million dollar budget repercussion, and the threat of a teachers’ strike over unresolved labor issues.
