As part of the Garfield Re-2 Superintendent Search, the district will be conducting candidate interviews Wednesday, March 18 & Thursday, March 19. If you are interested in participating on an interview committee please complete a the brief application below. The Garfield Re-2 School Board, in conjunction with their partners at the Colorado Association of School Boards will select the final interview committees with special attention paid to a wide representation of stakeholder groups including students, parents, community/business members, teachers, classified staff and administrators.

You will need to be available on Tuesday, March 3 from 4 - 6 p.m. AND most of the day Thursday, March 19.

The application can be found here.

Thank you Garfield Re-2 community for your willingness to participate in the Superintendent Search focus groups. John Merriam from the Colorado Association of School Boards conducted 16 focus groups in two-and-a-half days time across all three communities and he received a TON of feedback as to what our various stakeholders want to see in our new Superintendent.

The board and Mr. Merriam used that feedback, in part, to develop the questions and criteria they included in the Superintendent vacancy announcement documentation. The position, with the application was officially posted on the CASB website yesterday. (If you are curious, you can see all of the superintendent vacancies here.)

That feedback will also be used in developing the questions for Superintendent applicants.

The next steps in the process are:

• We will be inviting all of the stakeholders to participate in the interview teams towards the end of January. There will be a brief application process, and then the applicants will be narrowed down to around 16 to participate in the interviews in March;

•Feb. 20, 2020- Deadline for applications for Superintendent with CASB; Deadline for Superintendent Interview team applications.

• March 3, 2020- CASB interview training with Staff/Community teams. 4:00 PM LOC (Required Attendance for the interview teams);

• March 18, 2020- Finalist candidates to community and district for visit, meet and greet;

• March 19, 2020- Finalist interviews with the School Board and Staff/Community Teams;

• July 1, 2020- Contract begins for new Superintendent.
