Consultant Recommends Longer Search For New District 186 Superintendent; New Hire May Not Be Seated Until July 2014

The search firm that is poised to start a national effort to find Springfield's next school superintendent says it's in the district's best interest to use a longer, slower search process -- one which could mean the new hire won'tbe on the job until July of 2014.


Officials with School Exec Connect presented an expedited plan which could allow a new superintendent to be chosen and on the job as soon as this October, but they say that will limit the pool of potential candidates, reduce community involvement, and make it harder to find the ideal choice.


The school board is just getting started with the process of finding a replacement for Walter Milton, who stepped down as superintendent back in March.  Bob Leming is currently serving as interim superintenent, but under the terms of his pension, another interim may have to be appointed to serve part of the coming school year until a permanent hire is in place.
