The State Board of Education has identified six semifinalists for the position of director of the Wyoming Department of Education and plans to interview them in closed sessions Friday and Saturday.

The candidates each are being asked to also participate in 30-minute, public question-and-answer sessions Friday and Saturday.
The board plans to recommend three candidates to Gov. Matt Mead, who will appoint the director.
A statewide elected superintendent once led the Department of Education, but the Legislature and Mead changed that with a new law that says a director appointed by the governor will now lead it.
The semifinalists were chosen from a pool of 84 applicants.
