Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Executive Director for Secondary Education Dr. Agnes Slayman is a finalist for the Chester County School District superintendent position, according to the school district’s interim superintendent John Taylor.

Taylor said the previous Chester school district superintendent left the position in May.

One particular quality the school board members are looking for in the next superintendent, Taylor added, is someone who is an “instructional leader.”

“It would be a really great opportunity, and it’s something that I’ve tried to work toward my entire career,” Slayman said of the position.

Slayman has worked as a high school assistant principal, a middle and high school principal and as the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at the KCSD. She received her Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina.

In April 2009, Slayman was also a finalist for the York School District One superintendent position.

Other finalists for the Chester County superintendent position are: Dr. Carlotta D. Redish, Cherokee County School District associate superintendent for administrative services and instruction; Dr. Ahmed Sean Alford, chief instructional services officer for the Beaufort County School District; and Dr. Stephen C. Laws, Wilkes County (N.C.) Schools superintendent.

The Chester County Board of School Trustees is expected to make a decision at a special-called meeting Nov. 28. The name of the finalist who is selected will be released shortly afterward, Taylor said.

The selected finalist could start the new position as early as the beginning of next year.
