Six finalists have been identified by the Alabama State Board of Education to become the next superintendent of Alabama schools.

The board received 12 applications from educators across the country after Tommy Bice announced his retirement in March, and managed to winnow the list down to the final six at the board meeting Tuesday.

The finalists include three local school superintendents, including one veteran of the state Department of Education:

  • Bill Evers: research fellow at Stanford University
  • Dee Fowler: superintendent of Madison City Schools
  • Craig Pouncey: superintendent of Jefferson County Schools and former deputy state superintendent
  • Jeana Ross: secretary of the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education
  • Michael Sentance: former Massachusetts Secretary of Education and regional representative to the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Janet Womack: superintendent of Florence City Schools

The candidates will begin the interview process Aug. 4 with State Board of Education members, and a selection will be made at the Aug. 11 board meeting.

The finalists’ applications can be viewed here.
