Update on Superintendent Search

November 17, 2016

 

The Board has concluded its interviews with candidates for the position of superintendent, and has moved to the final phase of the search. The Board has undertaken an extensive interview process, which included three rounds of discussions, and the opportunity for involvement from other internal stakeholders during these final steps. The process consisted of a mix of interview questions that reflected many of the topics that emerged from the stakeholder comments earlier in the search, as well as leadership and management scenarios that tested their presentation skills and the logic/sequence they would employ in addressing specific management issues.

 

This has been a very time-intensive process for the Board, and one that all nine members continue to take very seriously. From the coordinating of Board member and candidate schedules, to the analysis of candidates and extensive Board discussions each step of the way, we made every attempt to conduct this process with dignity, respect and an eye toward the future of Radnor. In fact, we will continue to work on this project after the formal appointment of the next superintendent as we develop a superintendent evaluation process and clarify Board-superintendent roles, responsibilities and protocols. So there is still much work to be done.

 

We will be updating you again as more information emerges.

 

Thank you,
RTSD Board of School Directors
