GRAND ISLAND, Neb. - An acting superintendent is now in place at Grand Island Public Schools. 

At Tuesday’s special meeting GIPS Associate Superintendent Dr. Robin Dexter became the district's acting superintendant. 

Dr. Dexter was appointed as the acting superintendent so that the district has a leader in place while the Board completes the search for the interim superintendent, board leaders said.

At the meeting the three final candidates were interviewed by the Board of Education. 

The candidates are Mr. Matthew Fisher, Dr. Virginia Moon, and Dr. Michael Teahon.
