Memphis City Schools superintendent Kriner Cash is one of three finalists to be superintendent of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools system.

He and the other two will be in Charlotte, N.C., Wednesday and Thursday for a series of public and private meetings with parents, school board members and the media.

The CMS board expects to pick one of the three some time in May.

Cash was recommended by the search firm PROACT along with Ann Clark, the CMS chief academic officer, and Heath Morrison, superintendent of the Washoe County Schools district in Reno, Nev.

The CMS board is searching for a replacement for superintendent Peter Gorman, who left in 2010.

Gorman spoke to the Shelby County Schools consolidation transition planning commission earlier this year along with others involved in the CMS system about Gorman’s aggressive reform agenda as a blueprint for a merged school system covering all of Shelby County is drafted.

Since Gorman left, CMS has had an interim superintendent.
