RTSD Superintendent Search Update (May 11, 2016)

RTSD Superintendent Search Update


May 11, 2016


The search for the next superintendent of Radnor Township School District is well underway. As previously stated, the Board of School Directors is committed to conducting a comprehensive search for a superintendent to replace Dr. Kelly, who announced that he will be ending his services to the district effective August 25, 2016. 


An essential component of identifying quality candidates for superintendent is in the selection of a search firm with a proven record of success. The board has considered a number of such firms and expects to make its final selection by the end of May. At that time, a detailed superintendent search timeline will be finalized and posted. 


Superintendent searches can be very time consuming and require a great deal of preparation and consideration. To ensure the continuing oversight of district operations in the event the next superintendent is not able to immediately join the district upon Dr. Kelly’s departure, the board is concurrently searching for candidates capable and available to serve as interim superintendent in the event this service would be needed. 


The board is appreciative of the community’s patience and understanding as we search for and select the district’s next superintendent.
