OAKHURST — The Bass Lake Joint Union Elementary School District Board of Trustees has selected Leadership Associates’ executive search advisor Sally Frazier, assisted by Juan Garza, to conduct the recruitment and comprehensive search process for the selection of the next district superintendent.
In March, current Superintendent Glenn Reid announced his retirement, effective in August of 2017.
Community input will be an essential component of the selection process. The Bass Lake Board met at a regularly scheduled board meeting with Frazier recently to discuss the search, the desirable characteristics of the next Superintendent and to identify groups within the district and our community to contact for input regarding the District’s next leader.
The search process will involve the community and all interested individuals and groups by seeking input and opinions regarding desired qualities, characteristics, background and experience for the new superintendent. Additionally, the search advisor will ask community members to share their perspectives on the strengths and challenges of the Bass Lake School District. The consultants will compile a report of comments received during the community input sessions. They will share these comments with the Board and will also use the input to develop the recruitment brochure.
Opportunities are provided for people to contact the consultants, via e-mail or cell phone if they are unable to attend meetings or would like to provide additional information.
An on-line survey, available in both English and Spanish versions, will be posted on the district’s website, from Monday, Apr. 10 through Friday, Apr. 21 for community members who would like to give input but are unable to attend the scheduled meetings or prefer to submit comments in this manner.
Leadership Associates has conducted over 350 superintendent searches throughout California. Candidates will be recruited from the region and the entire state to assist the Board in developing a broad field of candidates in order to select the best match for the district.
For information regarding scheduling a time to meet with the consultants as a group individual during the afternoon of Wednesday, Apr. 19, or attending the community forum that evening in the Computer Lab at Oak Creek Intermediate School please contact Kris Rich in the School District Office.
The meeting at Oak Creek Intermediate on Apr. 19 starts at 6 p.m.
If you are unable to meet personally with the Board’s advisors, you may send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may call (805) 364-2775 to leave a message to speak with Sally Frazier.
