The first community meeting addressing the search for a new Liberty-Benton superintendent took place Wednesday night. The Courier reports consultants with K-12 Business Consulting met with residents to talk about finding a replacement for the retiring Jim Knable.
Deb Campbell and Kathy Lowery are with the consulting agency. They told the newspaper they’ll hold a series of meetings with teachers, students, and district residents to create a “superintendent search profile.” The document will outline lists of the school district’s strengths and issues, and the characteristics the community would like to see in a superintendent. It will also have a ranked list of 10 traits the consulting firm finds essential.
Campbell and Lowery say they’ve already talked to more than 20 potential candidates. They tell the newspaper waiting for the search profile is important in narrowing the list down. They expect to have six to eight candidates set for interviews by late January.
