Burlington Superintendent Search Moves Forward with Local and National Support

 

Burlington, Vermont - The Burlington School Board’s search for a new superintendent is now supported by a group of community and District stakeholders, the Superintendent Search Advisory Committee (SSAC). This group will be involved throughout the search process and will have the critical role of reviewing applicants and bringing forth their top picks to the Burlington School Board. The School Board will then fully vet and select a candidate. SSAC selection began with an invitation to all community and school personnel to apply, which resulted in over 60 completed application surveys. The 15 members selected for the SSAC include business, community and municipal leaders, as well as parents, teachers, administrators, principals and Board Members. The SSAC includes residents from all seven Burlington Wards.    

 

“This group offers a wealth of knowledge and experience to our search regarding the strengths, challenges and critical needs of the Burlington community. It is exciting to bring this group together for the purpose of selecting Burlington School District’s next leader,” said Brian Cina, School Commissioner and Chair of the Board’s Ad Hoc Superintendent Search Committee.

 

The School Board has also selected Ray and Associates to assist in the search process. With offices in Iowa and New Jersey, Ray and Associates has a strong national reputation and an impressive track record of recruiting superintendents whose skill sets and personal attributes match the needs of districts who serve students with diverse backgrounds and experiences. "The Board is committed to identifying quality, long-term leadership for the District," said School Board Chair Patrick Halladay. "Ray and Associates has both national prestige and proven success in districts that resemble Burlington to identify quality candidates who can develop and guide Burlington's educational future."
 
Additional information regarding the SSAC and Ray and Associates can be found on the BSD website: www.bsdvt.org.
