Selection Of A New Superintendent Reply

The Region One All Board Chairs Committee met to discuss the search for a new Superintendent.
ABC and Salisbury Board Chair David Valcin, along with Cornwall Board Chair Catherine Tatge
suggested the Board promote Region One Assistant Superintendent Lisa Carter to the position.

The other Board Chairs did not feel that they would better serve the Region by doing a broad search.

Carter could apply through that process if she wished to seek the Superintendent position.

After a discussion about the potential search committee membership, the Board voted to appoint themselves as
the search committee with the intent of adding members from various groups within the schools and communities
of Region One.

The Board also voted to obtain RFP’s (Requests for Proposals) from two consultants, one of which would be hired
to assist with the search process.

The Board will meet again to review and choose the consultant. The Region One Board will then have a special
meeting to approve funding for the search consultant. The fee is estimated to be $10,000.00 which would need
to be allocated from the current Regional spending plan.
