DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Education Director Jason Glass is a finalist for a superintendent job at a Colorado school district.
The Eagle County Schools website says Glass is one of three finalists for the job. Glass started as director of Iowa’s Department of Education in late 2010. His past jobs include serving as the director of human resources for the Eagle County Schools and working for the Colorado Department of Education.
The Eagle County School District is located in the Rocky Mountains. The current superintendent is leaving to head up the Poudre school district in Fort Collins.
A spokesman for Gov. Terry Branstad says Thursday the interest in Glass is a sign that he is a top talent. Glass could not immediately be reached for comment.
