After providing dedicated service as superintendent of Le Sueur-Henderson Public Schools for over a decade, David Johnson has announced his retirement at the conclusion of this school year. One of the most important decisions that a school board makes is to hire a new superintendent. As a member of the South Central Service Cooperative, the Le Sueur-Henderson School Board voted to use the no cost Cooperative's Superintendent Search Program to help facilitate the search for a new superintendent. The timeline for the superintendent search is as follows:
Timeline - Activity
November through mid-January, 2011 Board planning, engaging the community through group meetings, and creating a profile of attributes for the new superintendent.
January 17, 2011 through March 18, 2011 - Advertise, recruit, and accept applications.
March 21, 2011 through March 31, 2011 - Screen candidates and complete the first round of interviews.
April 1, 2011 through April 8, 2011 - Conduct final interviews, possible site visit, Board offer, and action on superintendent contract.
A very important component of the search process is to seek staff, student, parent, and community input into the creation of a profile of attributes that a new superintendent should possess to be successful in the Le Sueur-Henderson School District. You can provide input by attending one of the community meetings with the Cooperative's search consultants at 6:00 pm on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at Hilltop Elementary School in Henderson or at 7:30 pm on Thursday, December 9, 2010 in the auditorium at Le Sueur-Henderson High School. If you cannot attend one of these meetings, you can also provide input on-line by clicking here
and completing electronically the Superintendent Search Questionnaire. The South Central Service Cooperative Search Consultants will tabulate the results of the returned questionnaires and assist the School Board in the creation of a profile of the skills and abilities that the new superintendent should possess to be successful.
Your engagement in the search process will be greatly appreciated by the Le Sueur-Henderson School Board. If you have any questions about the search timeline or process please contact Ed Waltman, South Central Service Cooperative at email@example.com or visit with a member of the Le Sueur-Henderson School Board.
