LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- It's your chance to question the two finalists for superintendent of Jefferson County Public Schools, as the first of two public forums is Monday night.
Both take place at the Durrett Auditorium just across the parking lot from Male High School.
Dr. Christine Johns-Haines is currently the superintendent of the Utica Community Schools in Michigan, just north of Detroit. It has an enrollment of more than 29,000 students, about a third of the size of Jefferson County.
Monday afternoon at Louisville's Central High School she spoke about why she believes she is qualified to be superintendent for JCPS: "I am a veteran superintendent with five years experience."
School board member Carol Haddad explains, "She really met the profile that we got from the community -- what they wanted to see, especially in student achievement, she really excels in that."
Haddad doesn't think the size of Johns-Haines' current school system will hurt her chances, because of previous experience: "She was in Baltimore before that, a deputy superintendent, so she does have experience in a large district."
Those who attend Monday night's public meeting will be able to submit written questions to a moderator, who will then actually ask the questions.
Member of the media will be allowed to question Johns-Haines following the meeting.
The other finalist is Doctor Donna Hargens, the superintendent of Wake Public Schools in North Carolina, with an enrollment of more than 143,000.
She will take part in a question and answer session here on Wednesday following the same format.
