- Phillip Pittman, Director of Curriculum, Allen Park Public Schools
- Yvonne Stokes, Academic Improvement Officer, Indianapolis Public Schools

The Board of Education narrowed the list to the five candidates after thoroughly reviewing all 49 applicants.
“I am thrilled with the expertise, wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience this list of candidates brings to our search for the next Superintendent of Ferndale Public Schools. As we look for the next leader of our district, I am confident that we will find in this pool an accomplished, talented and passionate individual that will be dedicated to our students, schools and community. We look forward to speaking with these candidates during the first round of interviews. I want to encourage everyone invested in our schools to join us during the interview process and provide the Board with their feedback and thoughts,” said Jennifer LaTosch, President, Ferndale Schools Board of Education.
The six candidates will participate in first round interviews next week on Tuesday, May 30th and Wednesday, May 31st. Each evening the Board will interview three candidates. Both meetings will be open to the public and begin at 6pm, in the Ferndale High School Media Center.
