District 18 To Hold Special Meeting

As part of the process of hiring a new superintendent, the District #18 Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 27.

The meeting, to be held in the distance learning room at the high school, will begin at 4 p.m.

Working with Marcia Herring from the Nebraska School Boards Association, board members will go through the hiring process and establish a compensation package. Applications are now being accepted and finalists to be interviewed will be determined at a board meeting scheduled for Feb. 11. Interviews with as many as four finalists will be conducted Feb. 18-19 with a decision likely to be made before the end of the month. District patrons, along with staff at the school will be asked to participate in a District/Community Needs assessment which will help prioritize issues facing the school district both in the short and long term. Persons wishing to participate in the assessment will be able to do so anonymously if they wish.
