The search could be coming to an end soon for Ector County ISD.
The district has been in the process of finding a new superintendent since September of 2018.
Former Superintendent Tom Crowe officially resigned from the district on Sept. 1 and the Board of Trustees appointed Jim Nelson to serve on an interim basis.
Since the resignation, the district has been in the process of finding a suitable replacement to lead ECISD moving forward.
The extensive search has included between 60 and 70 candidates, which was later narrowed to three.
ECISD also reached out to the community asking for their input via a survey, regarding the qualities they want to see in a superintendent.
Now, the district is planning to name a lone finalist next week.
Trustees will meet at 3 p.m. Tuesday to request approval to name the sole finalist for the position.
