Selecting a new school district leader is one of the most important decisions a school board will probably ever make. As a commissioned officer, the superintendent interacts regularly with the school board and other school district stakeholders, assists with the daily operations of the school district, has significant responsibility for the education program, and is accountable for the school district’s results.


MCIU is pleased to offer this service to school boards. The MCIU executive director will work with school board members to conduct a customized search for a new superintendent. The search process includes thoughtful planning and goal setting, a sound recruitment plan, a thorough review process, intensive selection activities, and effective communication of the results.
