Update #3 on Superintendent Search

May 15, 2015

The School Board approved the Profile of the New Shorewood Superintendent at its meeting on Tuesday evening, May 12. The Profile is the product generated from the dozens of focus group conversations, the 232 survey responses, and the numerous interviews with members of the school community over the past three weeks. The search consultants will use the Profile to select those candidates invited to meet the School Board for initial interviews, and Board members will use it as a guide throughout the selection process. We acknowledge that the Profile is a description of the “ideal” candidate and sets an impossibly high standard. Still, we aspire to find the very best match for our school community, and the Profile is an honest reflection of what our parents, administrators, faculty, and students have told us that we need. You may view the Profile and the community survey summaries below.

Community Survey Summaries

We have received applications from 40 candidates and anticipate several more before the position closes on May 18. The consultants continue to recruit, inform, review, and interview candidates.

A slate of six candidates will be brought to the School Board for their approval the week of May 18. Interviews of the six candidates will be the week of May 25. The names of these six candidates will be confidential; to violate the expectation of confidentiality would greatly diminish our pool of candidates and likely guarantee that no successful school leader would apply to a school district that would leak her/his applicant status.

The names of the finalists will be made public (expected to be the week of June 1). These three finalists will each spend most of a full day in the school community, meeting faculty, parents, and administrators, and there will be a second interview with the School Board to close the day. We will announce the dates of these visits and interviews when we have narrowed our search to the three finalists.

We are roughly three weeks away from meeting our new Shorewood Superintendent!
