        FAIRFIELD — The assistant superintendent of Forest Hills Schools is one of three candidates the Fairfield Board of Education is considering for second interviews to replace Superintendent Charles Wiedenmann, who is retiring at the end of the year.

        Robert Farrell is the only candidate being considered from Greater Cincinnati. He is starting his fourth year in the Forest Hills Schools.

        Mr. Farrell was one of 15 indi viduals who submitted applications for the superintendent position. Six people were initially interviewed earlier this month, said Anne Crone, vice president of the Fairfield Board of Education. The board has scheduled a special meeting for 4 p.m., Monday to discuss the matter.

        Others being considered are:

        • Gary Pack, superintendent of the Blount County Schools in Marysville, Tenn. He is the only candidate who is presently employed as a school superintendent. There are about 11,000 students enrolled in the district.

        • Arvo Toukonen, is assistant superintendent for support services of the 22,200-pupil ABC Unified School District in Los Angeles County, Calif.

        Mr. Wiedenmann has been superintendent of the Fairfield Schools since 1992.
