Add Highline to the list of area school districts considering Susan Enfield for their superintendent vacancy.

The Highline School Board announced Sunday that Enfield, the interim chief of Seattle Public Schools, is one of three finalists for its top job.

The other finalists are Federal Way Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Joshua Garcia and David Engle, a former high school principal in Seattle and Bellevue now serving as executive director of Educational Testing Service, a large assessment organization based in New Jersey.

Enfield, who has served as the temporary chief of Seattle’s schools since last March but announced in December she would not seek position on a permanent basis, is also being courted by the¬†Bellevue School District.

The three finalists for Highline’s opening will interview Feb. 22-24, the district announced. That’s just days after the last of Bellevue’s public input meetings on Feb. 16. The Bellevue School Board has told Enfield it will consider accelerating the search process for her after those meetings.
