Things are moving along in the search for a new superintendent at Chase County Schools.
Shari Becker, director of the Nebraska Association of School Boards’ (NASB) education leadership search service, was in Imperial last Thursday for a work session with the CCS board.
The afternoon prior to the board meeting was also spent gathering input from various groups including teachers, administrators, students and the public.
“We had good participation and good attendance,” Becker said.
Becker said, generally, the input she received in the afternoon here favors a superintendent who will be collaborative in his/her approach in working with different groups. Creating a team atmosphere and continuing to generate opportunities for students were also important, she said.
Patrons who would still like to submit input on the superintendent search can find a survey form on the school’s website: ccschools.cc
Applications for the position are due Jan. 5. Later that month, Board President Jeff Olsen said they hope to interview at least four finalists.
Supt. Brad Schoeppey, now in his third year at Chase County Schools, resigned his position effective June 2015.
