15.1 Appointment of Principal, High School
Interviews have been conducted and a candidate has been selected to fill the position of Principal, High School.
The incumbent in this position will be retiring at the end of the 2010-2011 school year.
There were 37 applicants for Clayton Valley High School and 39 applicants for College Park High School. There was a paper screening of the submitted applications. Candidates not holding the proper credentials and/or experience necessary for a high school principal position were screened out.
Input sessions were conducted at the high school sites with staff and community members to obtain a description of the attributes and skills that the community was seeking. Questions for the candidates in first round interviews were selected that would address the input obtained from each school site.
The first round interview included representatives of all the employee groups and the parent leadership organizations of both high schools. There was a College Park team and a Clayton Valley team. Each candidate submitted a writing sample based on a scenario presented to them 30 minutes before their scheduled interview time. Fourteen candidates were interviewed by both panels. Both panels identified the same four top candidates as their choice to go forward for further consideration.
A second interview was conducted by the Superintendent’s Council of those candidates forwarded from the first round. Extensive reference and background checks were conducted on all candidates prior to final selections being made.
This position is budgeted and funded within the General Fund.
Approve appointment as recommended.
