Rowley drops out of South Kitsap School District's interim superintendent search

South Kitsap School District school board president Kathryn Simpson said Steve Rowley has withdrawn as a candidate to serve as the district's interim superintendent.

Simpson said she could not provide any details beyond that.

The district is searching for an interim superintendent for the upcoming school year before it names a successor for Dave LaRose, who left to take a similar position in California's Culver City Unified School District, in April.

Rowley, who was Bainbridge School District's superintendent from 1997 to 2002, was among three candidates for the position. Simpson said the board will begin interviews for the interim superintendent position beginning at 4 p.m. today with Bev Cheney. She was SKSD's superintendent from 2001-08, when she retired. Port Angeles School District assistant superintendent Michelle Reid also will interview at 6 p.m. The school board is expected to choose between the candidates tonight.
