This guide, the second in a series of three, explains step-by-step the decisions that must be made to find, evaluate, and hire a quality superintendent of schools. Chapter 1 describes the steps for proper planning, which can also offer the opportunity to review and reorder the board's priorities. Subsequent chapters deal with recruitment and selection of superintendents and expectations of both the board and the superintendent. The final chapters offer suggestions on how to retain a superintendent as well as sample timelines for hiring and a news release. (Author/LD)
