Superintendent Search Update

At a special board meeting on Monday, May 3, board members discussed plans for hiring a new superintendent. Although they still have considerable work to do, they made several initial decisions that will guide their work over the next few months.

First, they decided to hire an interim superintendent for the 2010-11 school year. The board will begin discussing possible candidates to fill this role during closed session on May 5. They will announce the interim superintendent as soon as possible, but no later than June 15, 2010, in order to ensure a smooth transition with Dr. Malito.


Second, the board is considering whether to hire an outside firm to assist in the search process. No decision has been made, but they will develop a request for proposal that could be sent out to prospective firms once an interim superintendent has been hired. Visit the Superintendent Search Web page for regular updates, videos and to submit suggestions.
