|Superintendent Search Profile||Online Survey Results|
The Sartell-St. Stephen School District 748 Board of Education has contracted with School Exec Connect, a superintendent search firm, to assist with the search for a new superintendent. Board members want you to be informed of the process that the district will be following as the search is conducted for a new superintendent. Additionally, wcommunity and district stakeholder input is essential to assist this process in making the best selection possible.
To begin the process, the School Exec Connect consultants, Dr. Kenneth (Ken) Dragseth and Dr. Greg Vandal met with board members, school staff, parents, students and community members individually and in focus groups to determine the challenges, strengths, goals of the district and what characteristics or skills are needed in a superintendent. Additionally, staff and community members had the opportunity to give confidential written feedback to the consultants via the district website linked to a questionnaire in Survey Monkey. Using this information, a profile will be developed including the desired skills and characteristics in the next superintendent.
The position will be advertised and candidates will be recruited from October 1 through January 20. On January 27, the Board and consultants will meet to review and select candidates to be initially interviewed. The Board will interview five or six recommended candidates on January 28 and 29. On January 29, the Board will narrow the field to two or three finalists. The next round of individual interviews will occur on February 3, 4 and 5, if needed. Each candidate will be invited for an all day interview process including open forums that will be available to staff, students and community members and a final formal Board interview. The Board is asking staff, students and community to provide input into the selection. Community members will be able to do this by participating in an open question and answer session with each candidate and filling in a feedback sheet to be shared with the Board. The Board plans to act on the new superintendent’s contract in February.
Please feel free to contact Ken Dragseth (952-210-2790) or Greg Vandal (320-247-3739) withe any questions regarding the search.
