The Executive Director Search Process and the Final Three Candidates
STEM is almost to the finish line after a long and inclusive process to name the next Executive Director for our flagship school. The final three candidates spent almost two hours answering questions from students, staff and parents on Friday. This is the final step in collecting feedback from our stakeholders and seeing how the candidates answered your most important questions. 

All three final candidates are exceptional school leaders and could each fulfill the role with dedication and skill. The three are our current high school director, Ryan Alsup, our current K-5 director, LynAnn Kovalesky, and former K-12 director, Leanne Weyman. All three are dedicated parents and understand the complexities of leading one of the best schools in Colorado and the USA.  Click here to read more
