Flying Blind

May 6, 2019


In this article, Dr. Blane Covert describes the problems that Boards of Trustees will likely encounter without the help of consultants.

School Board Members often have little to no experience when it comes to hiring a Head of School or Superintendent.  In fact, Board Members generally lack the experience to conduct a comprehensive search that ends with a successful match.  This last statement is certainly not intended to disparage Board Members, who volunteer tremendous time and effort to the schools and districts they serve; however, just because an individual is capable of making a sound decision in his or her profession does not necessarily qualify him or her to evaluate candidates for a Head of School/Superintendent position. 

Frankly, numerous administrative searches led by Board Members are disorganized at best, with many based on the personal connections of those doing the hiring.   Fortunately, many School Boards hire consultants and search firms because they lack the experience, time, and contacts necessary to attract candidates who are both qualified and aligned with a school's or district’s values.

Enter Academy Educational Consulting AND a search firm—you need both in order to find the right leader.  Academy helps your Board develop the skills necessary to hire with confidence.  Thanks to a research-based methodology—the first of its kind in the nation—your Board will learn how to communicate with search firms more productively, conduct searches more thoroughly, and vet candidates more effectively.  When your search firm presents candidates, you’ll know the type of leader you’re looking for.

Academy Educational Consulting solves the Head of School/Superintendent turnover problem with high-impact online courses that empower Independent School Boards of Trustees and Public School Boards of Education to take control of the leadership succession process.  To learn more about how to make your next Head of School/Superintendent search a success, visit www.academyeducationalconsulting.com or https://academy-educational-consulting.mykajabi.com.
