Gelbrich finalist for California job

Juneau School District Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich is a finalist for another superintendent job, this time in Red Bluff, Calif.

Gelbrich is one of three finalists for the job, according to a news release from the Red Bluff Joint Union High School District. Interviews are scheduled for the week of May 12, and the district’s Board of Trustees plans to make a hiring decision by May 21.

The district used consulting firm McPherson & Jacobson LLC to assist in its superintendent search, the release stated. Consultants reviewed, screened and conducted background checks on 20 applicants. They presented the applicants to the board May 5, and the board named its top three the next day. The two other finalists are both from California.

Red Bluff is a town of about 14,000 in the northern part of the state. The Red Bluff Joint Union High School District is made up of two high schools. The larger of the two, Red Bluff High School, has about 1,735 students. 

Gelbrich was a finalist for a superintendent position in Montana in December 2013 and in Idaho in early March, but did not land either job. He announced his intended resignation from the Juneau School District in mid-March.
