The Exeter Township School District Board of School Directors took official action approving the services of the Berks County Intermediate Unit (BCIU) in the facilitation of a superintendent search for the school district.
Selecting a new school district leader is one of the most important tasks a school board undertakes. As the school district's chief executive officer, the superintendent interacts regularly with the school board and other school district stakeholders, conducts the daily operations of the school district, and is ultimately responsible for the school district's educational programs and results. Finding the right superintendent is critical for the future of our district.
For your reference, below is the tentative timeline for accomplishing the above search components:
• Position Posting: Friday, December 20, 2019 – Thursday, January 23, 2020
• Community Survey: December 20, 2019 – Friday, January 10, 2020
• Interviews: Mid to End of February
• Board Appointment (Tentative): March 10 or 17, 2020
• Start Date: June 2020 or Upon Release
The school board will also be soliciting input regarding the qualities our staff would like to see in the next Superintendent, and will make the online Community Survey available to all school personnel. In addition, please note that we will be asking several staff members (two teachers, one support staff member, and two administrators) to serve on the initial screening interviews. The Board is committed to selecting an outstanding candidate who possesses the abilities and leadership qualities best suited to the needs of our school district. On behalf of the Board of School Directors, thank you for your continued dedication to our students as well as your patience and support as we implement this important process.
