Gaches named Mounds superintendent
By Greg Evens
MOUNDS - After seeking applications and interviewing candidates, the Mounds School
Board hired a new superintendent of schools during its March board meeting.
After reviewing 43 applications and interviewing seven of the candidates, the board selected
Alfred Gaches for the position. Gaches has six years of experience as a superintendent and the board
believes Gaches will be able to guide Mounds Schools growth during the coming years. For the past
year, Gaches served as the Superintendent of Wynnewood Public Schools, which is located near
Paul's Valley. He held the same position at Schulter Public Schools in Okmulgee County for the prior
Before becoming a superintendent, Gaches was the K-12 principal and coach at Grand schools.
He previously coached and taught at various schools in Oklahoma and New Mexico.
Current Superintendent Dr. James Grey did not seek the permanent position.
"I agreed to come to the district for a year," Dr. Grey said. "I was always here on an interim basis."
"We have some teachers who are on temporary contracts and their status must be determined,"
Dr. Grey said, a decision on next year's staffing levels has not been made.
A number of steps were involved in the selection of a new superintendent. Initially the position
was posted and applications were sent out to those interested. The applications were reviewed by
the School Board members and the 43 applications were narrowed down to seven to be interviewed.
All seven of these candidates were interviewed in one day. The Board voted upon for its choice and
asked Gaches back. Gaches brought back specific contract details and the formal contract was drawn
up. It was approved and signed by both the Board and Gaches.
Gaches is scheduled to start at Mounds Schools on July 1. If Gaches expresses interest in
starting before July, the details can be worked out between the Board and Gaches.
