Here’s the agenda for a special Monday meeting that was announced today. A draft letter included in the agenda is soliciting proposals from consultants to perform a nationwide search for a new superintendent.
Board President Lisa Brunner said the firm that was previously hired for the search — the search that was aborted last spring when Janis Duran came on as permanent superintendent — is among those that will be approached for the new search. A bidding process is mandatory, so they couldn’t just be asked if they could resume their search. So it’s possible that the work that was previously done (and money spent) may not go to waste.
Moving fast, tho. According to the draft letter: “The Board anticipates a very short timeline for the selection of the search firm. Therefore, the Board is requesting a response by Feb. 9, 2011. Based on the information submitted by the consultants, three firms will be selected to interview. Interviews will be scheduled sometime during the week of Feb. 14.”
