Dear CUSD Families and Staff,

As many of you know, last Tuesday, February 2, 2021, the CUSD Board of Education voted to begin the search for a new Superintendent. The board also voted to use a search firm to increase reach and efficiency. The subcommittee appointed by the board has developed the following timeline to move the process forward over the coming weeks:

  • February 3, 2021 - RFP drafted and shared with prospective firms
  • February 10, 2021 -  Deadline for submission of proposals from search firms

  • February 11, 2021 through February 15, 2021
    • Review proposals to ensure they meet all basic requirements for consideration by the full Board
    • Evaluate responsive search firms through reference calls to contacts provided in the proposals
    • Coordinate with selected firms to plan for a Special Board Meeting which will include firm presentations 
    • Week of February 15, 2021 - Special Board Meeting (Open Session)
    • Superintendent search firm presentations/interviews
    • Superintendent search firm selection

  • Week of February 22, 2021 - Special Board Meeting (Open Session)
    • Approval of agreement with search firm
    • Superintendent search planning session with selected firm

We look forward to identifying the search firm that is best equipped to support the District in hiring our next Superintendent. We will continue to update the community as we move through this process.

Sara Hinds, Board President
