The Times' article says it all:
The Bellevue School Board voted this morning to officially notify Susan Enfield that she is a “strong candidate” for their superintendent vacancy and that it will consider accelerating the search process to accommodate her.
I'm a little confused at why they would accelerate the process to "accommodate her" unless she wanted to leave SPS early. I mean, after all, if Bellevue is going to have a process, you'd think they'd want to do a through one. Or maybe this explains it:
Bellevue officials believe Enfield is being recruited to apply for superintendent vacancies in several schools districts across the country and region, said Coe, although she declined to say why they think that.
Meanwhile, I hope to do a thread this weekend on Seattle's search firm - they look good to me and hey! they have a money-back guarantee if their candidate leaves in the first year.
