Marple Newtown School Board Announces Superintendent Search

 

September 14, 2018

 

 

Dear MNSD Parents, Students, Staff and Community,

 

Although the task of replacing a superintendent of schools is challenging, the Board of School Directors is pleased to announce that the search for the next superintendent is underway.

 

MNSD is requesting your input in selecting our next superintendent of schools.  Please complete the online survey, available here, no later than October 15, 2018.  The results of this survey will be used in developing a profile that indicates the desired qualities and attributes of the next superintendent.

 

As we move through the selection process, we will strive to keep you informed as much as possible. Please check the district website for updates throughout the coming months. The Board aims to have the search process completed by late spring so that a newly appointed superintendent can begin on or as close to July 1, 2019 as possible.  A more specific anticipated timeline regarding this process is available below.

 

The District welcomes the opportunity to work with the entire Marple Newtown community to secure an exceptional leader to serve as the next superintendent of schools.  Any questions you may have regarding the search process should be directed to Jim Orwig, Director of Human Resources, at 610-359-4380 or jorwig@mnsd.org.

 

Thank you for your support during this important process!

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Kathryn Chandless

 

 

Kathryn Chandless

President, Board of School Directors
