Update on the High School Principal Search
In October the district began the search for a new high school principal by advertising and conducting an initial vetting of candidates via administrative resume review of 30 qualified applicants, resulting in 10 candidates being subjected to phone screenings.
In November, we began interviews for the 2020-21 school year. Teacher and staff input was solicited via a series of interviews, including building-based participants. Input was further solicited via direct involvement of high school parents and representatives from valued community organizations who partner with the school district in a subsequent interview process.
After the School-Based High School Principal Search Advisory Committee interviewed candidates in late-November, and the Community-Based High School Principal Search Advisory Committee interviewed candidates in mid-December, a forum is now planned where elementary, middle school, and high school parents will meet vetted candidates in early January. (Stay tuned for a specific date and times.) At the conclusion of this process, at least two applicants will be recommended to the Superintendent of Schools and Deputy Superintendent for a final interview before the successful candidate is recommended by the Superintendent to the Board of Education at the January 16, 2020 Board of Education Meeting for appointment, effective July 1, 2020.
