On Selecting a Superintendent of Schools.
Monahan, William W.
Five steps essential to an effective procedure for selecting a new superintendent are listed. The author suggests that these procedures should provide board members with answers to basic questions, such as who should be involved in the selection process, what the board should expect from the outgoing superintendent, how to attract the right people, what applicants want to know about districts, how to discover whether applicants possess the desired qualifications, how to select the "right" one, and at what point announcement should be made of the new appointment. Also discussed are the two categories of superintendents -- career bound and place bound -- and some characteristics of each that could help the board to decide. (Author/JN)
