The Board considers foremost among its responsibilities the selection and appointment of a superintendent who can effectively translate into action the policies of the Board and the aspirations of the community for its schools.
In order to provide the most capable leadership available for the district, the Board may appoint from within existing staff, or engage in a wide search for applicants for the position of superintendent whenever a vacancy in that position occurs.
The Board may seek the advice and counsel of interested individuals, or of an advisory committee, or it may hire consultants to assist in screening candidates and to encourage the filing of applications by professional educators who meet the qualifications. Final selection, however, will rest with the Board after a thorough consideration of qualified applicants.
The Board will appoint the superintendent by a majority vote of the Board members at a meeting for which notice has been given of the intended action.
