The Rochester Board of Education will hear tonight from a representative of the search firm that is looking for the school district's next superintendent.
School Exec Connect is on the agenda of the board's regular meeting; the meeting begins at 7 tonight in the Harrison Room of the Board of Education.
According to the job posting on the School Exec Connect website, applications will be accepted through Nov. 15 and selected candidates will be taken to the board Dec. 5. The selection and start dates of a new superintendent are still to be determined, according to the job posting, which can be viewed here.
The new superintendent will replace Fred Clarke, who resigned last month after 14 months on the job. School Exec Connect, which helped find Clarke in 2011, agreed to help board members with a new search free of charge. The district will be responsible for expense and advertising costs, but the search firm will not charge its normal $19,500 base fee.
Also on tonight's school board agenda:
- A presentation from Brooklands Elementary Anti-Bullying program
- Authors in April
- The hiring of two teachers: Janice Bryant at North Hill Elementary and Michelle Kopp at Rochester High School.
