GILFORD — Kirk Beitler, the assistant superintendent in the Laconia School District, is the last remaining candidate for the top spot in the Gilford School District.
Administrators said this morning that David Ryan of the Manchester School District had withdrawn his name from consideration.
School Board Chairman Karen Thurston said earlier that, despite the closure of school Tuesday for inclement weather, there is still a parents meeting with Beitler scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Gilford High School auditorium.
"We had two very good candidates and Mr. Beitler has put in a great deal of effort and we need to continue forward at this time," said Thurston, encouraging parents to come to the high school tonight to meet him.
She said Beitler will be meeting with administrators and teachers during the school day on Thursday and the School Board will be meeting with Beitler in a nonpublic session Thursday night from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
Mark Billings, Inter-Lakes High School school board member, who chaired the selection committee at Inter-Lakes, confirmed Tuesday that Ryan also withdrew his application to succeed Mary Ellen Ormond as superintendent there.
