- Listen to information from Northwest Leadership Associates (NWLA) to prepare for Superintendent Job Announcement
Tom Rockefeller, Pam Veltri, and Gene Sementi shared information from that was collected at in-person meetings last week and from an online survey of people in the community.
There were two community meetings, several group meetings with staff, and individual meetings with the Board members. The NWLA team felt that they were able to get a wide representation of the diverse community of Chelan.
The questions were about the greatest strengths and most important challenges facing the district. Considerations of the most important professional and personal characteristics for the next superintendent.
The NWLA team narrowed these results and discussed the underlying themes for district strengths and challenges, professional qualifications and personal characteristics to be put on the Superintendent Position Announcement.
There was discussion about finalizing the position announcement this week and sending out nationally. NWLA went over some of the next steps in the search process, application procedures, application deadline, and the interview process. NWLA will take all the applications and help the school board in the screening process.
The position should close mid-March and interviews will happen in April. NWLA will be working with the board for all of the interview process. All updates of the process will be posted on the district Superintendent Selection webpage: https://www.chelanschools.org/lake-chelan-superintendent-selection/
Kim thanked Tom, Pam, and Gene for all of their work in compiling the survey and meeting data.
Kim Thorpe adjourned the meeting at 8:55 am.
