The Nevada Joint Union High School District has agreed to hire an executive search firm for $11,500 to find a new superintendent. But according to the consultancy contract, it is planning to largely re-use the job description from three years ago.
“To use with minor editing the recruitment brochure employed in the district’s last superintendent search and electronically distribute it as a recruitment brochure announcing the position,” the agreement reads. “(The consultant) will also ask the interview questions from the district’s last superintendent search in the development of interview packets for the Board.”
The Board should use the vacancy to re-calibrate where they have been and where they are going, especially after the tectonic shifts that have occurred in the past three years: Major declines in enrollment and drastic budget cuts from the state.
This is not “business as usual” and would seem to require something more substantial that just minor editing of the existing recruitment brochure.
