EACS Opts to Not Appoint Interim Superintendent Created by on 3/6/2013 10:48:43 AM
Statement from the East Allen County School Board:
The Board of School Trustees is preparing to search for a new Superiendent. The Board is committed to hiring a superintendent that will strengthen our school district and move us to greater success.
The Board takes this process very seriously, and we are committed to conducting a search that is as open and transparent as possible. The process will include input from our staff, parents, students and residents of the communities served by EACS. The Board plans to take its time with this process in order to find the best candidate to lead the school district. Rather than adhering to a strict timeline, we have set some timeframes during which we would like to see things happen. Our goal is to have a Superintendent in place for the 2013-2014 school year.
Rather than appointing an interim superintendent, the EACS school board has decided to utilize its current staff. East Allen County Schools has an exceptional and dedicated staff in place, and we are confident in their abilities to get us through the remainder of the school year. Then, at the end of the school year, we will re-evaluate the need of an interim Superintendent, based on where we are with our Superiendent search.
