Superintendent Search

 

National search informed by community input

The City School District of Albany Board of Education is conducting a confidential national search to select and hire its next permanent superintendent.

 

As a first step in the process during January, the board worked with an experienced search consultant, the Western New York Educational Services Council, to engage a wide range of community partners to identify the qualities and characteristics they value in a leader for our diverse district of more than 9,600 students.

 

The process included individual and small-group meetings with community leaders, focus groups with students, staff, parents, not-for-profit partners, local business partners, clergy and elected representatives, an open community forum and an online survey. 

 

Our thanks to all who took the time to participate in this important process.  

 

Search information, materials and timeline

The board hired Western New York Educational Services Council on Nov. 3 as its search partner. The organization has assisted in hundreds of successful searches in cities such as Rochester, Rome, Oswego, Oneonta and New York City. Board Secretary Anne Savage is the board's point person for the search. She delivered this presentation about the process at the board's Nov. 17 meeting.

 

As part of a confidential search, the names of all candidates will remain confidential. The board will make all decisions concerning the selection process, evaluation of candidates and final appointment. Candidates cannot contact any board member directly through this process. All questions and application materials should be directed to the board's lead consultant, Robert Christmann -- (716) 645-2932 or rwchrist@buffalo.edu.

 

The application deadline is March 31. Please follow these links for application materials:

Following the March 31 application deadline, the consultants will screen the applicants and recommend semifinalists to the board. First-round interviews with the board are planned for early May. Second-round interviews with the board will be held in early June. The board will announce its selection after the final candidate has signed a contract, and it is anticipated that the new superintendent will begin their duties in late summer.
