School Superintendent Hiring Procedure OK’d

A procedure and timeline for selecting the next Lincoln School District Superintendent was recommended for full board approval last Friday afternoon at a meeting of the Executive Search Committee.

Among the items discussed:

Application period – 9/3-9/28
Interviews – 10/19-10/26
Formal approval – 11/10
Proposed beginning salary – $120 thousand/year

See here the memo with proposed procedures.

Monroe attorney Jon Guice, who had recently been retained by the board to assist in the process, had several suggestions that were incorporated into the plan.

Said Guice, “You have to decide who want to interview. What if you have six applicants? You can say we’re going to interview three, we’re going to intervew all six – that’s purely a board decision.”

Asked what the board was legally required by state law, Guice said that the applicants had to be certified to be a superintendent, and that the position must be advertised. Beyond that, he said, the board could use any procedure it saw fit.

Superintendent Mike Milstead noted that the post office box to which the application should be mailed had been procured.

Applications must be postmarked no later than 9/28/20.

The full board will consider the recommendation at its 9/1/20 meeting.
