SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH PROCESS - UPDATE FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT

Hello Southern Door Eagles,
With the recent announcement of Mrs. Vickman's retirement, I wanted to provide an update on the status of hiring for Southern Door's next superintendent. First, as a board, we conducted interviews and reference checks with different hiring firms. We were most pleased with the services that WASB offers, and we signed a contract with them in earlier in the month. WASB was the firm that also found Patti, and they are well versed in the needs of our district and the expertise that Patti provides to the district.
Thank you for providing input on the staff and parent surveys that will provide important feedback to the board as we progress in the search process. There is currently a stakeholder group being gathered, to represent various areas of the district and community, to provide additional feedback on finalists. Our goal is to have the superintendent hired by April 1. We look forward to new opportunities, and working in a collaborative partnership on this endeavor.
Thank you,
Penny Price, Board of Education President
