Board Launches Superintendent Search
The Suffield Board of Education has begun the search for a new superintendent. The Board has engaged the services of the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) to facilitate the search process. The process is expected to take approximately 120 days, with the intent of a new superintendent assuming the role on or before July 1, 2019. Dr. Elizabeth Osga, a retired CT Public School Superintendent, is serving as the NESDEC Search Consultant.
The Board will serve as the executive search committee. It will invite stakeholders to participate in the search process through a combination of focus groups, surveys and interviews. Please watch for notices on these opportunities which will take place in February.
The search process will have three phases:
- The initial phase will include a call for candidates and the development of an ideal candidate profile.
- The second phase will engage the search committee in application reviews and interviews.
- The last phase will focus on ensuring that the final candidate is thoroughly vetted and is a sound match for the district.
