Superintendent Search Services

The Association of Alaska School Boards Superintendent Search Service offers maximum flexibility to Alaska School Boards and assures the Board has total control of the selection and appointment process. The search team performs the legwork associated with the search, allowing the Board to concentrate on the most critical steps in the search; setting the criteria, interviewing the most qualified candidates, and selecting the next superintendent.

Search facilitation fees are based on the level of assistance that the Board may require regarding the search. This can range from a packet of information to help you conduct your own search to various levels of involvement and facilitation including a fully supported search. Fees are also based on your ADM. Our facilitated searches now include exclusive and required online document management for all application materials.

Superintendent Search Process

Each Board of Education has different needs and approaches to conducting its business. The Association of Alaska School Boards Superintendent Search Service understands this and will work to ensure that the superintendent search is directed by the Board and is tailored to its needs and desires.

The entire search process emphasizes that the search will be objective, fair, and confidential and will reflect the criteria determined by the full board, and not that of the search consultant.

AASB has a proven search process and extensive sources for advertising vacancies. This includes nation-wide exposure through the National Affiliation of Superintendent Searchers (NASS), the National Indian Education Association (NIEA), and the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) and other colleagues and opportunities.

For more information, email Lon Garrison or Timi Tullis or call (907) 463-1660.

The superintendent search process includes these steps:
1. Outline the Process

AASB will assist the Board in developing a tailored approach to the search that will cover all necessary components including:

  • Selection criteria
  • Finalist Screening
  • Vacancy notice distribution
  • Interview structure and facilitation
  • Application packaging
  • Contract terms•Candidate recruitment
  • New superintendent news release
  • Candidate background verification
2. Identify Selection Criteria

The AASB consultant will assist the Board in developing the criteria for selecting the new superintendent by determining whether:

  • the search will be nationwide or limited to Alaska
  • Alaska experience or special strengths are required
  • in-district candidates are given preference
  • issues within the district require special consideration
3. The Recruitment Process

Once the selection criteria have been identified, AASB will work with the board to develop a vacancy announcement that will describe the position, school district and community, and professional background and attribute criteria desired. This information will be published as an electronic brochure on the AASB website and shared widely.

4. Applicant Files

AASB now uses an entirely online application and candidate review program developed and supported by our colleagues at the Ohio School Boards Association. Interested candidates can apply by going to aasb.myrevelus.org.

5. Candidate Background Verification

AASB requires all applicants to go through a background check that consists of a national criminal background check, a sex offender list review and a SSN trace for each applicant. An education, employer and professional license verification is also conducted. Through AASBs extensive professional network, confidential reference verification of all candidates is completed. AASB solicits valuable information from other state associations and school boards that can then help Alaska boards gain insights into each candidate.

6. Screening to Identify Finalists

During the formal applicant screening process the search consultant will meet with the board; provide a brief overview for each applicant including any background information secured. In addition, the search consultant will facilitate the board’s screening of applicant file according to the established criteria. This process could include brief audio conferences with individual candidates as necessary.

The board, at its discretion, will determine the best-qualified candidates for further consideration. AASB will notify all applicants not selected as finalists.

7. Selection of Finalists & Logistics

Following review of applicant files, background verification and executive session consensus; the board will select the finalists they wish to interview. During this time, the board will also develop a schedule for the finalist’s on-site visit and formal interview. Common questions to be asked candidates during the formal interview will also be developed at this time.

AASB will accept responsibility for contacting finalists, preparing a press release announcing the finalists and the process for the on-site visit by the candidates, and make all finalist travel arrangements for formal interview.

8. The Interview Process

The AASB search consultant will be on-site during the interview and selection process. AASB will assume responsibility for providing the board with the tools necessary to successfully interview the candidates and present the candidates to the staff and community. The search consultant is available to facilitate the processes necessary to present the district and community to the candidates as well as afford the opportunity for staff and community to “experience” the finalists.

Once a candidate is selected and accepts, the search consultant will facilitate the contract parameters to be signed by the candidate and board. These parameters will form the basis for a formal contract to be developed by the district’s legal counsel. The search consultant will also assist the Board with preparing a press release of the superintendent appointment.

9. Timelines

An adequate timeline is critical to the success of the search. The suggested timeline shown below is offered as a guideline should time and circumstances allow.

This position will work in a mostly remote environment, and can be based in Alaska, Oregon, or Washington. In-person interaction and travel will resume once it is safe to do so.

Organization Overview

The Region 16 Comprehensive Center (R16CC or the Center) is one of 19 federal grant– supported regional centers in the United States and US territories. Each center is charged by the United States Department of Education (US ED) to help state education agencies, regional educational agencies, local educational agencies, and schools improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, and improve the quality of instruction. Together with our state, regional, tribal, school, and community partners, R16CC provides evidence-based services and support across our three-state region.

R16CC is comprised of three statewide organizations representing 29 Educational Service Districts in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon.

R16CC’s model is a unique consortium of partnerships. Each state in our region develops, with its partners, a state service plan.

Yupiit School District

Akiachak, Alaska

Superintendent Vacancy

The Yupiit Board of Education desires a superintendent that understands, appreciates and will be involved in our local Yup’ik culture. The Board seeks a superintendent that will work to build trusting, positive relationships with employees, regional board members, local advisory board members, and all stakeholders in the three villages of the district (Akiachak, Akiak and Tuluksak). The applicant will recognize and have experience with the uniquely important role of village school principals and their associated local advisory boards and work to support their success in effectively educating Yupiit students who are connected to their local culture and traditions. The Board is seeking an individual that has demonstrated experience with effective and uniquely appropriate ways of measuring student growth and proficiency that recognizes the learning styles and cultural qualities of indigenous people.

The ideal candidate will be adept and experienced in working with federal, state and local agencies including our tribal governments in a collaborative fashion that promotes meeting the needs of Yupiit student success and academic achievement. Additionally, the superintendent will have the skills to work collaboratively with the Board and school communities and will spend quality time in all three communities. We desire a person who has shown an ability to be creative when resources are scarce; who can motivate and lead without oppressing; who is not afraid to aggressively seek other sources of support for educational programs and school maintenance. It is essential in a small district such as ours that a superintendent knows how to work well with a business office and manage the district resources as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Superintendent Search FAQ
Who conducts superintendent searches?

Each search is facilitated by a member of the Association staff. Norm Wooten and Timi Tullis are the primary search consultants.

How will AASB know what the board and district need in a superintendent?

The AASB search consultant will meet with the board to identify the district priorities and specific selection criteria. The Board will use this information throughout the search to identify the most suitable candidates for the position.

How can the board include the community in identifying needs and priorities?

Districts have utilized a variety of approaches to involve community and staff in the search process. These approaches include using the district’s website for an interested individual to provide input into the qualifications and personal attributes for the new superintendent; having parent organizations and staff respond to a formal questionnaire regarding what is desired in a new superintendent; identifying a committee representing a cross-section of interested parties to meet with the search consultant; and a host of other less formal approaches.

Can the community be involved in the selection of candidates?

Most boards have finalists meet with the community in an open forum when the finalists are on-site. These sessions, moderated by the AASB search consultant, are structured to invite questions from the audience. In districts where multiple communities are involved, video conferencing has been utilized effectively to involve all interested constituents.

Who will review the candidate applications?

The Association has a formal application that all candidates must complete to be considered for the position. In most cases, the completed application is accompanied by the candidate’s professional portfolio and a minimum of three confidential references provided on AASB forms. Each candidate’s complete application file will be reviewed by the Board of Education when determining candidates to be interviewed.

How many candidates does the board interview?

Most Boards select three or four candidates to interview in the district. Travel and accommodations are almost always paid by the district.

What questions should the board ask of candidates?

The AASB consultant will guide the interviews and assist the board in the development of questions that pertain to the selection criteria.

How long will the search take?

A thorough search can take as long as three months from the initial workshop that identifies board priorities and candidate criteria through the selection of the new superintendent. Searches that occur in the late spring are usually expedited to better ensure a candidate pool and provide sufficient time for the successful candidate to assume responsibility as the new superintendent by July 1.

How does the Association’s Superintendent Search Service differ from other consultants?

Association staff does not select superintendents or superintendent finalists. That is the sole responsibility of the board. AASB helps ensure the search results in the best candidate for the district, not the best district for a particular candidate. AASB is committed to relieving the burdensome “tasks” associated with a search, so that board members can focus their energy on determining the best candidate to move the district forward for students.

How often will the search consultant be in the district?

For most searches, the search consultant will be in the district on four occasions:

  1. An initial meeting to familiarize the board with the search process, establish timelines and other search parameters and identify selection criteria.
  2. A second meeting to determine the candidates to be interviewed. This session also allows the board to prepare for the on-site candidate visit and the development of formal interview questions.
  3. A third meeting when the candidates are on-site for interviews and the new superintendent is selected and contract parameters determined.
  4. A final meeting is scheduled after the new superintendent is in the district. This workshop helps to clarify board and superintendent responsibilities and priorities to help ensure a positive beginning to the relationship.
AASB-Facilitated Superintendent Searches

The Association of Alaska School Boards Superintendent Search Service offers maximum flexibility to Alaska School Boards and assures the Board has total control of the selection and appointment process. The search team performs the legwork associated with the search, allowing the Board to concentrate on the most critical steps in the search; setting the criteria, interviewing the most qualified candidates and selecting the next superintendent.

Search facilitation fees are based on the level of assistance that the Board may require regarding the search. This can range from a packet of information to help you conduct your own search to various levels of involvement and facilitation including a fully supported search. Fees are also based on your ADM. Our facilitated searches now include exclusive and required online document management for all application materials.
