Boston school officials are expected on Wednesday to announce three finalists for the superintendent’s job, a diverse group that includes a former Minnesota education commissioner, a high-ranking Miami-Dade County school district leader, and a principal at a local Catholic high school who once served as Randolph schools superintendent.

The finalists are Brenda Cassellius, the former state education commissioner in Minnesota; Marie Izquierdo, chief academic officer for the Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Florida; and Oscar Santos, head of school at the Cathedral High School in the South End and a former Randolph superintendent who worked in the Boston school system for 14 years and is a graduate of Boston Latin School.

All three of the candidates are people of color. Each will be interviewed in public next week by the School Committee and by three separate panels of community leaders, school administrators, parents, and students. Izquierdo will be interviewed on Monday; Cassellius on Tuesday; and Santos on Wednesday.
