The rest of the selection and hiring timeline is as follows:
March 13, 2007 - All application materials due to Ray & Associates.
March 27, 2007 - Executive Session regarding Personnel; the board reviews applications.
TBD - Executive Session regarding Personnel; the board interviews candidates.
TBD - Finalist(s) announced; optional on-site visits with leading candidate(s).
TBD - Offer of contract and press release regarding the new superintendent.
It is the Board’s goal to have a new superintendent hired by the end of April.
I'm glad the Board is keeping the recruitment process quieter this time. I don't believe it's possible to do a good job of recruiting a superintendent in a fish bowl with everyone watching and commenting from the outside looking in.
However, I sure am curious about the quantity and quality of applications received. I continue to be skeptical about the ability of the Board to hire a high quality superintendent, but I'd love to be proved wrong.
