The position opening came after the death of Victory Elementary's part-time music teacher earlier this year. At that time the district posted the job, but received no applicants.
A little more than a week ago word got out that the administration was planning to staff the position with current music teachers who would split their duties to cover the needs at Victory.
That would effectively cut the .6 part-time position from the music program, which led to a bit of an uproar from parents and community members, mostly over social media.
In the meantime, the superintendent position was in flux with acting super Pat Gavin stepping down for personal reasons and a new acting super being named at Monday's school board meeting. Tom Holoman was named to the position and took his seat at the table in time to hear several members of the public speak passionately about not cutting the music department position.
After the meeting, Holoman said he would look into the possibility of reposting the job upon hearing there could be interest from recent music teaching graduates. He and many members of the school board spoke highly of district's music program.
On Wednesday, Holoman released the letter on the district's website. It is publicly open to internal and external candidates with a note that internal interest would be considered first.
Applicants must submit all required paperwork to the district office prior to 3:30 p.m. May 30.
