Update on Superintendent Search

August 2, 2016

The search for the next superintendent of Radnor Township School District is officially underway. The School Board has had the opportunity to meet with our consultant to discuss various logistical and governance issues related to the search process, including the search timeline; the roles, responsibilities and dynamics of a high-impact governing team; and the leadership competencies that appeared in the initial job positing.

The position has been distributed statewide through websites, PENNLINK, and direct outreach efforts to school leaders throughout Pennsylvania. The opportunity is also being promoted nationally through one of the industry’s most prominent venues, EdWeek. A next phase of advertising and recruiting will be rolled out this week.

The Board would like to include the community in this process, and we have asked our consultant to develop focus group opportunities for the residents of the district. What will evolve from these discussions will be a deeper set of strategic competencies and leadership experiences needed for the next superintendent to successfully lead RTSD into the future. Through our consultant and internal staff, we are finalizing the dates, times and locations of those meetings – and expect to have that information distributed this week.

Thank you,
RTSD Board of School Directors
