DOLGEVILLE — The Dolgeville Board of Education, currently advertising for a new superintendent, will finalize a timeline for the selection process during a meeting later this month.
Board President Karen Nagle said the tentative schedule for the selection process will have three-tiers, with different groups of the school and community having a chance to be involved.
Information about the position is available on the school district’s website at www.dolgeville.org.
The application deadline is Jan. 31, with the hopes of the new superintendent taking office by July 1.
Nagle said after they have received the applications, the school board and administrators will meet later that week to decide on which candidates they will call for an interview based on a rubric that will have the standards they are looking for in a candidate.
“We’ll all have the same rubric to use to evaluate,” she said.
During mid-winter break — from Feb. 19 to 23 — Nagle said administrators will meet with the candidates for the first round of interviews, with a second round tentatively planned for March 5 to 9 that will involve other school personnel and students.
Nagle said this round of interviews likely would take place after school hours — between 4 and 5:30 p.m. — so interested parties can participate.
Later that month, from March 26 to 30, Nagle said the board will interview the final candidates for the position. Nagle said the candidates will then be asked to participate in a public forum to meet with members of the community.
During the week of April 2 to 6, the board will do its final reference check with the hopes of having the candidate visit the community.
“We hope to have a new superintendent announced on April 17,” said Nagle, which would be during a regular board meeting.
District Superintendent Christine Reynolds announced last year she planned to retire in June after eight years in the position.
