Invitation to Apply for Interview Observer Panel


The Lake Chelan School District Board of Directors is seeking individuals to serve on the Superintendent Interview Observer Panel to observe the preliminary interviews of candidates for superintendent of the Lake Chelan School District. The interviews will be held on Tuesday, March 22nd and Wednesday, March 23rd starting at 4:30 p.m. 


While the School Board will be conducting the interviews, each member of the Interview Observer Panel will have the opportunity to listen and individually provide input to the Board on each candidate’s responses. The input will help the Board select candidate finalists to return for Final Interviews for the superintendent position. 


For the Board to gain the best possible information about each candidate, panelists must be able to attend BOTH days of interviews. Please plan to arrive at 4:00 p.m. March 22nd for the orientation prior to the interview that will begin at 4:30 p.m. There could be three to four interviews each day, with the last interview ending as late as 9:00 p.m. A light dinner will be provided both evenings. 


The Board of Directors intends to invite and select approximately 12 community and/or staff members representing a cross section of the District and community to serve on the Interview Observer Panel. Those interested in being considered for inclusion on the panel should submit an application for the Superintendent Search Interview Observer Panel.
