There are currently three elementary principal positions that are either open or anticipated to be open. These positions are at Champlain Elementary, Integrated Arts Academy, and the Sustainability Academy. The school district is taking a proactive approach to hiring these positions, and we are moving forward preparing for the possibility that all three positions will be open and will need to be filled for the upcoming school year.
A Search Advisory Team (SAT) comprised of representatives from various roles within the District and each of the three schools will lead a combined search for these positions. The team will review application materials and conduct interviews with qualified candidates, and will select some of these candidates to move onto the next round of the process: Staff and Community Forums. After the forums, the SAT will reconvene and present a final list of candidates for consideration to the Superintendent. Final hiring decisions and assignments are ultimately made by the Superintendent, who then assumes the greatest amount of accountability to the performance of these new hires.
