In its quest to hire a superintendent to replace Hardy Murphy, who retired in August, the Evanston/Skokie District 65 School Board will interview four finalists at a public meeting on Monday.

The special meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Joseph E. Hill Education Center, 1500 McDaniel  Ave.

Each firm will be given 10 minutes to make a presentation, followed by 30 minutes of questioning by board members.

The four finalists were chosen Monday night after the board reviewed proposals from seven firms that had responded to its request for proposals.

The meeting will be televised live on Comcast Channel 19 and will be streamed live on the internet.

The schedule calls for the firm of ECRA/Harzard, Young & Attea to be interviewed at 4:30 p.m., b.w.p. and Associates at 5:15 p.m., School Exec Connect at 6:15 p.m. and Ray and Associates at 7 p.m.

Following completion of the interviews, the board is expected to make its selection.
