The Winona Area Public Schools board will meet next week to conduct a final round of interviews to find a replacement for superintendent Scott Hannon.

The three finalists will attend meet-and-greets at the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce and tour district schools before the interviews Tuesday and Wednesday, which will take place in the district offices and be open to the public.

After the interviews, board members will determine which candidate they will offer the job.

At a special meeting Wednesday, board members determined their top three finalists for the position. They are:

Stephen Flisk, associate superintendent for Minneapolis Public Schools; Stephen West, executive director of educational services with the Eden Prairie School District; and Patrick Sweeney, assistant superintendent for instructional support of the Paradise Valley Unified School District in Arizona.

The board will interview Sweeney at 5 p.m. and Flisk at 7 p.m. Tuesday. West’s interview is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Hannon has served the school district for four decades as teacher, assistant principal, principal and director of academic affairs. He was hired as superintendent on a two-year contract in early 2012 after serving two years as interim superintendent. He chose not to formally apply for the permanent position during a previous search. After that search failed, with multiple candidates dropping out, the board offered the position to him.

Hannon’s two-year contract expires in June 2014, when he will retire. He made that official by submitting his letter of retirement to the board in December.
