Recruitment and Appointment of Superintendent

The appointment of a Superintendent is the legal responsibility of the Board. The Board will conduct an active search to find the person it believes can most effectively translate into action the policies of the Board, the aspirations of the community, and foster a diverse professional staff. Applicants who can best fulfill the role will be sought from within the school system and from without. 

Appointment of Superintendent

A vote of the majority of the Board members, present at a Board meeting for which due notice has been given of the intended action, will be required for the appointment of the Superintendent.
