Dear ISE Community,
As we move toward the end of the first quarter of the school year and our Student Led Conferences on October 15 and 17, I wanted to bring you up to date on the search for our new school superintendent.
The process to hire the new Superintendent at ISE began several weeks ago. In meetings with the Board of Directors it was decided that we would conduct our own search rather than use an outside agency. This is the approach we have taken for the last two school head searches.
We have used our contacts in the region to spread the word about the position. We are listing the position with TIE On-line website which has a worldwide reach. I have notified EARCOS and ISAT about the opening. There are a number of candidates who have already applied from each of these organizations.
We are asking candidates to apply by October 19, 2014. Charlie and I will conduct personal interviews with the candidates where possible, and Skype interviews otherwise. This process has already begun. We will also interview at the EARCOS Leadership Conference in Malaysia at the end of October.
We hope to bring finalist candidates to ISE before the Christmas holidays and will plan a full schedule of meetings and interviews with all segments of the community. After those visits, the Board will make the decision on my replacement.
I will write updates on the search as we proceed. I would be happy to chat with anyone about this if you wish.
