Don't Expect Search Firms to Do All the Work (and Meet Dr. Blane Covert in Philadelphia!)

March 15, 2019


SPECIAL NOTE:  Dr. Covert will be an exhibitor at the National School Boards Association Annual Conference in Philadelphia later this month.  Stop by Cutting Edge AveNEW, Booth 1131, to meet him and to enter a drawing to win free access to Academy’s innovative online programs.

Is your Superintendent planning to resign or retire?

You’re not alone.

If your district is like most, you'll need a new Superintendent every 3-5 years, and you'll spend more than $50,000 on search firm fees every time you make a hire.  

Searching for and ultimately hiring the right leader is a costly, challenging, and time-consuming task. Like any other major undertaking, it takes preparation; unfortunately, this is where many School Boards fall woefully short.  


It’s often a matter of expectations. If your School Board expects the search firm to do all of the work, you’re making a serious mistake. That’s because “the work” includes much more than the search consultant visiting your district, collecting résumés, screening candidates, and arranging interviews. “The work” also means understanding your district’s culture, its educational philosophy, its unique issues, and its constituents. Until your School Board is able to provide the search firm with this critical information, the odds are good that your Board will continue to experience disruptive, costly, and unnecessary turnover.

If you’re interested in learning how your district can step off the Superintendent turnover treadmill once and for all, you’ll want to stop by Academy Educational Consulting’s exhibit at the National School Boards Association Annual Conference.
