East Grand Rapids School Board Seeks Input in Superintendent Search

The East Grand Rapids Board of Education has begun the search process to find a new superintendent. Assisting the Board is Dr. Rodney Green of the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), a service organization that supports the work of school boards throughout Michigan.

As the profile of the ideal candidate is developed, the boards are soliciting community and staff input. Residents of the district, all staff, and administration were provided an opportunity to participate in the process through an online survey.  

Survey responses are sent directly to MASB in Lansing for tabulation. The Board will publicly consider the input received and develop a Candidate Profile, which will guide the process as candidates are recruited and selected for public interview. The Board expects to select the new superintendent in June 2018.
