186 Board Hears Presentations from Search Firms
The District 186 board of education is still looking for its next superintendent. To help with the process, the board is considering hiring a search firm.
Today, board members heard presentations and interviewed a couple of superintendent search firms. So far, they've talked with four different firms. But they're still not any closer to deciding on one, or if they will go with any firm at all.
"I would like to see us get started, personally," board member Scott McFarland said. "I think we need to have someone in place as soon as possible that's going to be good for the district, but I don't want to rush into things and I don't want to wait if we don't have to."
Right now on their agenda, which is still a draft, is more discussion on search firms. McFarland hopes they can put on a unified front and hopes everyone is part of the discussion.
