The Los Angeles Board of Education held a private retreat over the weekend to discuss the next superintendent of schools and ended up picking two executive search firms to interview.

Five firms have applied for the job and all remain in the running, the Los Angeles Times reported.

After its closed session Sunday afternoon, the board voted to pick two firms initially to interview, in public, as early as Tuesday’s regularly scheduled board meeting, according to The Times Monday. The two companies are La Quinta-based Leadership Associates and Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates of Rosemont, Illinois.

The other firms are: Hamilton, Rabinovitz & Associates of Carmel; McPherson & Jacobson of Omaha, and Ray and Associates of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

School board President Steve Zimmer said the board needed to pick a search firm no later than Sept. 15 and preferably sooner, according to The Times. The board has set aside as much as $250,000 plus expenses for the contract.
