USD 230 BOE Meeting Recap

The Spring Hill School Board of Education held a special meeting on Jan. 18, 2022 at the District Administrative Center to discuss the superintendent search timeline.


KASB Director of Leadership Services Dr. Britton Hart and Leadership Services Field Specialist Dr. Doug Moeckel will guide USD 230 through the entire process of selecting Superintendent Dr. Wayne Burke’s successor. The KASB timeline for the superintendent search is broken up into four phases:

  • Phase I - Announcement and Timeline

  • Phase II - Preparation for Interviews

  • Phase III - Interviews

  • Phase IV - Negotiations and Hiring 


The key dates are scheduled as follows:

  • Jan. 20-Jan. 29, 2022 - Superintendent characteristic community survey window

  • Jan. 31, 2022 - Superintendent characteristic focus groups

  • Jan. 31, 2022 - KASB presentation to the BOE with survey and focus group results

  • Feb. 16, 2022 - Completed superintendent applications are due to KASB

  • Feb. 18, 2022 - KASB screening committee meets to review applications

  • Feb. 24, 2022 - KASB meets with BOE to present candidates; BOE makes finalist selections

  • Feb. 28-Mar. 3, 2022 - Superintendent candidate interviews


In an effort to make the best possible selection, the Board would like to include a way for all members of the community to offer their thoughts on this very important position and process. These opportunities include the survey, focus groups, and meet-and-greet events during the week of the candidate interviews.


The survey asks participants to share their ideas about the major issues facing the district in the next several years; the personal and professional qualities they believe are important for the superintendent, and the performance expectations they believe would mark that person's success.  All responses are entirely anonymous and are delivered directly to the KASB search facilitator.


All survey responses must be recorded by Saturday, Jan. 29 at 11:59 p.m.: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/USD230
