ROCKLAND, Maine — A decision on who will be the next superintendent in Regional School Unit 13 could be made in less than two weeks.

The board will be conducting second interviews with the three finalists for the district’s top job on Saturday, June 9, Board Chairman Greg Hamlin said Tuesday night. He said the board will then meet June 11 to discuss the possible hiring of a candidate.

Hamlin said he does not know whether the board will make a visit to the districts where the candidates are located.

There were nine candidates for the job vacated in December by Judy Lucarelli, who took a contract job with the Muskie School.

Neal Guyer has served as interim superintendent for the past six months. Guyer has been an administrator, first in School Administrative District 50 for many years and for the past three years with RSU, 13 which resulted from the consolidation of SADs 5 and 50. His positions have included director of school improvement.

The three finalists have not been named and Guyer declined comment Wednesday when asked whether he was one of them.

RSU 13 has about 2,000 students and more than 400 staff. The district consists of Rockland, Thomaston, St. George, Owls Head, South Thomaston and Cushing.
