The Sevier School District Board of Education has received mixed reviews on opening the application process for its Superintendent to employees within the district. Myron Mickelsen the current Superintendent for Sevier School District is set to retire at the end of the current school year in May. The School board made the decision to find candidates in the district for five basic reasons. Clint Johnson stated, “Our test scores are awesome, we don’t want to kill the momentum. There are also eight different districts looking for a superintendent, we honestly feel that we have outstanding people in our district, and we want to be open in our process”. But there are many in the surrounding communities who disagree with the School Districts decision to keep it closed. Qualified candidates outside the district will not have the chance apply and many believe opportunities will be lost for new ideas in the district. The application period for the new Superintendent ends Tuesday, April 16.
