The Kansas Association of School Boards is the first place boards turn for help to select a new superintendent. KASB has successfully offered superintendent search services for almost forty years.
As part of our search process KASB provides on-going support for the board of education and the new superintendent. This includes a meeting to help the board and superintendent establish mutual expectations. Staff will also be available for follow-up consultation with the board and superintendent. Our role is to not only help select a superintendent but help ensure that a successful relationship continues between the board and superintendent. We consider our process to be a partnership not only during the selection phase, but beyond.
