FAIRBANKS - The school board will consider nontraditional candidates for superintendent of the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says the district will not require applicants to hold a Type B certificate from the state Department of Education. That's the certificate for principals, vice principals and administrators.
The board says it's looking for an exceptional leader who might not have the certification.
The application deadline is May 19 and finalists may be announced in mid-April.
