The Dallas Independent School District board interviewed its second round of candidates in its search for a new superintendent.

The interviews took place Thursday inside the Dallas Omni Hotel, according to a district representative. The representative told NBC 5 that the district would not elaborate on the number of candidates it has identified.

All candidates were required to have their applications in by March 9, according to a district news release.

There will be two rounds of interviews, with the goal of selecting a lone finalist by April 4. The new superintendent would then officially begin his or her tenure at DISD on July 2.

The criteria for selecting the candidates was drawn mainly from input from district representatives, teachers, community members and parents.
