Posted: Updated:
CARY, N.C. -

The Wake County School Board intends to announce its next superintendent next Tuesday.

The three finalists for the job are Dana Tyrone Bedden, Jim Merrill, and Ann Blakeney Clark. All three candidates spoke at a public forum Tuesday night that covered topics from how politics affects the school system to bullying.

School leaders hope to have the new superintendent start in July.

All three candidates have extensive backgrounds in the classroom, school administration, and district-level administration, the system said.

Finalist Background Information

Wake County is looking to replace former Superintendent Tony Tata, who was fired last fall by a Democratic-led board.
