As a member of the school board and as a parent in this district, I am very encouraged by the superintendent-search process so far. The board interviewed several search firms for this job, and were impressed by the professionalism and apparent capabilities of each. In the end, we unanimously agreed to hire HYA (Hazard, Young, Attea), and I would encourage anyone who can find the time, to take the opportunity to meet the members of this team. They are spending a lot of time listening to all the stakeholder voices before they create the leadership profile which they will present to us on Nov. 25. That profile ultimately is the ‘job description’ they will be using as they work to find our next superintendent. They have also created online input mechanisms which can be located via the district website. This is a unique opportunity for our school community, and I hope you will all let your voices be heard.
