The Search for Super Heroes: What Does the Board Really Want?
Caster, Richard J.
School Administrator, v51 n7 p16-18 Aug 1994
Instead of issuing boilerplate announcements of superintendent vacancies, school boards must be specific about district needs and wants. Boards hunting superintendents should decide what is important, publicize their decision widely, communicate district needs to search firm, interview only candidates who meet these criteria, use community and employee groups to screen finalists, and deal with search controversies openly and honestly.
