With 26 members of the Superintendent Search Committee: the 2017 Edition, it is a lot of people to get to know. The Superintendent Search Committee holds a valuable role in the search for our next superintendent as they are responsible for initial contact and vetting of the candidates in conjunction with the search firm. In addition, they will select the top three finalists for recommendation to the board. Which, if you recall from the MOU, will then in turn have to be submitted to the state board for review. In an effort to better familiarize people with the names on the paper, I did a lot of googling. The links provided are most of what I could find on googling that may give some background and understanding of who each person is. Many of the links are not relevant to education or RPS; however, it serves to provide a large picture and context of some of these individuals. Of course, based on varying degrees of newsworthiness, some members have very little information about them online while others have a lot more. Sit back, grab a glass of wine (or three), and enjoy.
