Carvalhophoto_4Gledichphoto_7 The public can see the Pinellas School Board's interviews with the four finalists to be the district's next superintendent. To see video of the sessions, which took place Wednesday, just go to and look under the heading "PCS News" or click here.

The finalists are (clockwise from above left): Alberto M. Carvalho, 43, associate superintendent of Miami-Dade schools; Nicholas M. Gledich, 55, chief operations officer for Orange County schools; Julie Janssen, 59, interim superintendent in Pinellas; and Sherrie Nickell, 50, associate superintendent for Polk County schools.

Today, School Board members are interviewing the finalists one-on-one in private. The next step: a workshop Tuesday in which the board will narrow the field to two or three and invite them back for a second interview on Sept. 8.
