This past month, focus group participants, including representatives from all four of the agency’s employee groups along with local superintendents, created a “leadership profile” which details the type of leader the agency is looking for to replace Dr. Roark Horn. Among the attributes sought in candidates are excellent people skills, strong ethics and morals, and a collaborative and inspiring approach. In addition to the leadership profile, focus group participants worked on interview questions.
AEA 267 board members will meet in closed session on March 24 to select four or five applicants for initial interviews. The interviews will be done by the board two days later, also in closed session. Candidates will then be narrowed down to two finalists to be interviewed on March 31 and April 1 by focus groups. It is hoped that the board will be able to announce a new leader by April 2.
A sincere thank you to all those participating in the process!
