Recruiting and Selecting a New Superintendent. Revised.
Lewis, Edmund L., Ed.
The recruitment and selection of a new superintendent is a difficult and time-consuming task. It is the single most critical responsibility of a school board. The decision will ultimately affect the entire education program of the district. Careful and thoughtful preparation, definition of orderly and effective procedures, conformity with ethical practices, adequate financing, and the involvement of the public, interested organizations, and staff are critical in the search for and the selection of a new superintendent. These guidelines represent the recommended procedure for all California school districts and outline the roles of the school board, the professional education advisor, and the recruiting and screening committee. Appendixes contain recruitment sources for minorities and women, a standard application form, and guides for conducting the final interviews and visitation to the candidate's community. (Author/MLF)
