Process to select a new CEO is underway

One of the most important duties of a Board of Trustees is to select a highly effective leader to implement the work of the Board.

As a result of the retirement announcement by Kathy Soule, Director of Education, the Board is committed to following the process outlined in Board Policy 16: Selection of the Director [1], to seek a chief education officer/chief executive officer (CEO). This individual must be one who will support success for each student, employee excellence and community connections as the key goals of the organization, and foster a system of character as the foundation for these goals. The candidate will be expected to exhibit strong, responsible, dedicated and knowledgeable administrative leadership for the district.

The Board met Thursday, April 7, 2011 during a closed session and determined to work with the outgoing director of education to select a new CEO.

Discussions will continue, with an announcement anticipated as soon as possible in order to maintain organizational stability.
