By Bill Raack, KWMU

The finalists are Kelvin Adams of the Recovery School District in New Orleans, Eric Becoats of Guilford County Schools in Greensboro, N.C., and Donnie Evans, a former superintendent in Providence, R.I.

The new superintendent will be the seventh to fill the position in the last five years.
