Rutherford County Schools director finalist: Andrea Anthony, John Ash – Daily News Journal

Three Rutherford County Schools administrators will interview as finalists to replace outgoing director Bill Spurlock.
Rutherford County Board of Education members on Tuesday evening unanimously accepted the recommended finalists by the Tennessee School Boards Association: 
Board chairperson Tiffany Johnson said she will work with staff to schedule interviews next week.
Vice chairperson Shelia Bratton requested the board consider interviewing the three finalists on the same night to avoid an unfair process. The questions, however, will be provided in advance. 
District spokesperson James Evans will distribute a survey, asking families what they’d like board members to ask the finalists. 
The TSBA provided the board with applications from the three finalists who met the board’s criteria for the job. All three have earned doctorates. 
Four others applied and could still be considered for interviews.
About five job candidates chose not to submit applications after deciding the pay range of $200,000 to $225,000 was too low, said Tammy Grissom, executive director of the TSBA. 
The fast-growing district is expected to exceed 50,000 students next year. The district this year has 49,300 students attending 50 schools.  
The board hired the TSBA to conduct the applicant search for $6,500.
