Diversity and Inclusion

Sioux City superintendent candidates answer community questions Wednesday [Video]

SIOUX CITY – The two finalists for the Sioux City Community School superintendent position, Rod Earleywine and Geovanny Ponce took time on Wednesday to participate in public interviews.

Earleywine currently serves as the district’s interim superintendent and Ponce currently serves as assistant superintendent of high schools for the Houston Independent School District in Houston, Texas.

The two answered both prepared questions and questions asked by the community. Many of the questions surrounded the diversity within the district and how each would address issues such as achievement gaps, equity and inclusion, and parent involvement.

A selection decision could be made by the school board on Thursday afternoon, but an announcement may not be made until later in the month.

Rod Earleywine, interim superintendent, responds to questions from the audience during a community forum with the candidates for superintendent of the Sioux City Community School District at Sioux City North High School.
