Superintendent Search Process
Port Townsend School District is searching for a new superintendent. The first step was to select a search consultant. This consultant will help with the process and will conduct a nationwide search for candidates.

The next step was to determine the qualities we want in our next superintendent. This information was used to build a profile of the ideal candidate. The profile will be used in the screening and interview process, so engaging our community and staff iwas vital.  An online survey and focus groups of staff, community, parents and students happened as a part of the process of gathering information and forming the profile to begin the search process. Thank you to everyone who participated.

The Executive Summary Leadership Profile and Ideal Candidate profile was presented at a November 12 board meeting.

The search consultant conducted a nationwide search for candidates.
