Re-1 to begin search for new super

As Roaring Fork Schools Superintendent Fred Wall counts the months to his retirement next year, the Re-1 school board plans to begin this month to begin the long process of searching for his successor.

That process is complex, and the board is turning to the Colorado Association of School Boards for help.

The board plans to consult with CASB special projects consultant Bob Cito by mid-October to begin plotting its search, Wall said Thursday.

CASB often serves as a resource for school boards statewide to help them search for key personnel, Cito said.

“Hopefully, there will be something for the board to react to by the next meeting,” scheduled for Oct. 12, Wall said.

Board Vice President Bruce Wampler said CASB will help the district advertise for a new superintendent after the board spends about two weeks developing a list of qualifications for the post.

Advertisements will likely run for up to three months, Wampler said, adding that the board could search nationwide. Once resumes start arriving, CASB will help screen the applicants according to the qualifications the board will set for superintendent candidates, Wampler said.

“Once you’ve identified you’re going to be in the search for a superintendent, you want to start the process and get it facilitated as soon as possible,” Cito said.

Citizens will be involved in the selection process, Wampler said, and candidates may be interviewed in February or March.

Wampler said he expects the board to hold a special workshop in early October when it will consult with Cito.
