The Board of Education is solely responsible for the recruitment, selection and appointment of the
superintendent of schools. The Board will conduct an active search to find the individual believed
most capable of putting into action the policies of the Board, while it remains cognizant of the
aspirations of the community, and of the professional and support staff.
The Board may seek the advice and counsel of interested individuals or an advisory committee. A
consultant may be employed to assist in the selection of a superintendent. However, after a thorough
consideration of qualified applicants, final selection will rest with the Board.
A vote of the majority of the whole Board will be required for the appointment of the superintendent.
