BURLEY — The Cassia County School District’s board is launching its search for a new superintendent with the help of the Idaho School Board Association’s help.
The district’s goal is to have the new superintendent in place by the end of the school year.
“The school district is currently working with the ISBA to gather information that will be used for a promotional brochure which will be sent to candidates in other Idaho school districts and across the Northwest.
“We will soon be sending out a survey to community and staff soliciting input regarding the requirements and characteristics of the next superintendent,” said a statement from Ryan Cranney, the school board chairman. “The board feels it is extremely important to include as many stakeholders in this process as possible.”
In January, the board will begin an extensive advertising campaign to recruit candidates from across the country.
Applications will close in February and semi-finalists will be chosen by late February, he said.
The district will announce the finalists in early March and staff and the community will have an opportunity to meet with each of the candidates.
The board will interview the finalists by mid-March.
“… It is our plan to have the new superintendent selected soon thereafter,” Cranney said.
The dates for public and staff opportunities to meet the candidates will be announced when the dates are set.
