BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Bismarck School Board this week is interviewing four candidates to be the district's next superintendent, in its second attempt to find a suitable person for the job.

The candidates are from Washington state, Arizona and Minnesota. The Bismarck Tribune reports they'll be interviewed Tuesday through Friday.

Superintendent Paul Johnson resigned last year to become president of a school in Bulgaria. The district's first attempt to find a replacement ended when the board decided there were no qualified candidates. The board began the second attempt last fall. Board member Matt Sagsveen says he's impressed with the candidates this time around.
