This hands-on action lab will cover all aspects of the superintendent search process. We will explain areas of responsibility of the CSA and have small groups reach consensus on their expectations. The next step is the Preparation Stage where we will discuss the decisions that have to be made. In small groups the attendees will participate in a hands on activity on setting up the search criteria. The next step is the Processing Stage, which involves setting up a calendar, the application, and the interviews. In small groups the participants will review the legality of interview questions. The last phase in the process is the Final Selection Stage. In this stage we will discuss choosing the finalists, district visits, negotiating the contract, and picking the new superintendent.
