The interim superintendent of Eugene’s 4-J school district is one of two finalists for the superintendent job in Albany. Cydney Vandercar was appointed interim superintendent almost two years ago. The Eugene district is conducting a search for a permanent replacement.

Meanwhile, Greater Albany Public Schools has been without a top official since last July, when the board fired then-superintendent Melissa Goff without saying why. The other finalist for the Albany job is Andy Gardner, the superintendent of the North Santiam School District.
