WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island’s second largest school district will soon be without a superintendent.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1UHZuTz ) two finalists for the Warwick district’s superintendent position have removed themselves from the running.

The current superintendent, Richard D’Agostino, is set to retire on Monday and a replacement has not been found.

Mayor Scott Avedisian says that D’Agostino and an educator from Massachusetts were in the running for the permanent position, but have withdrawn from consideration.

Avedisian is now calling for the school committee to start a new, more transparent hiring process.

But the school committee’s vice chair, Eugene Nadeau, says he doesn’t think the committee will want to restart the hiring process, but will instead appoint another interim superintendent.

The committee plans to meet Tuesday to discuss their next steps.
