Tulsa Public Schools is in the last round of interviews in the search for a new superintendent. One of the two finalists was interviewed Friday evening.

The board will interview the other finalist Saturday.

The two finalists are Dr. Deborah Gist, who currently serves as the Commissioner of Education for the Rhode Island Department of Education, and Mr. Millard House, who served as Deputy Superintendent for TPS, but has more recently served as Chief Operating Officer at Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina.
