10-14-2008 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #44


Title
Determination of Process for Superintendent Search

Discussion

The Superintendent has announced his retirement effective June 30, 2009. The Board should act expeditiously to determine the process for selecting a new superintendent. Options include but are not limited to employing a search firm that specializes in public school superintendents to conduct a nationwide search.

It is recommended that the Board determine the process to be followed in searching for candidates for the superintendent position by the October 28, 2008 School Board meeting to provide sufficient time to select a new superintendent before Dr. DiPatri's contract expires.

This agenda item has been prepared at the request of Board Chair Janice Kershaw.



Recommendation
Determine the process to be followed to employ a new Superintendent of Schools.
