MCPS Board of Education Launches Search for New Superintendent
September 16, 2010
 
The Montgomery County Board of Education on Thursday, September 16, took the first step in the search for a new superintendent of schools by approving a resolution that authorizes a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) to hire a search firm to assist in the superintendent selection process.

“This RFP officially launches our search for a new leader for MCPS,” said Board of Education President Patricia B. O’Neill. “Conducting a national search to field the most qualified group of candidates to lead the district is our top priority.”

A search firm will assist the Montgomery County Board of Education with key pieces of the national search process including: articulating the qualifications for a superintendent, facilitating the process for community input and engagement, identifying and fielding a pool of highly-qualified candidates, coordinating the interview process, assisting the Board in narrowing down a field of candidates, and advising the Board on an appropriate compensation package.

Last month, Superintendent of Schools Jerry D. Weast announced that he will retire at the end of his current contract, which expires on June 30, 2011. Dr. Weast will leave MCPS after 12 years of service.

The Board expects to finalize its selection of a search firm by the end of this year.
