The Manchester School District in New Hampshire has announced former Rochester City School District superintendent Bolgen Vargas is its sole remaining candidate for the district’s open superintendent position.
“On Saturday, September 24 the entire school board will meet to interview Dr. Vargas and make a final decision,” the district said in a statement on its website.
Vargas was one of two final candidates for the position.
The other candidate, Vincent Cotter, has reportedly withdrawn from consideration for personal reasons.
“Citizens will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Vargas during his visit to Manchester, and a reaction form will be used to gather public input, prior to the school board’s meeting on Saturday morning,” the district stated. “If the full school board does not reach agreement on this candidate, the search process for Manchester’s next superintendent will continue.”
Officials said Vargas will begin the new role Oct. 1 if he is selected, following the retirement of the district’s current superintendent.
