Superintendent Search

Each year a number of school boards throughout Missouri are faced with the responsibility of selecting a superintendent for their school district. MSBA’s Superintendent Search Program is designed to help guide the board through a comprehensive assessment and selection process.

Some of the benefits the process provides are:

  • Consultants with expertise in the search process and experience as superintendent.
  • Structure that ensures the local board remains in control of the search.
  • Conduct successful searches regardless of district size ranging from fewer than 300 to over 20,000 students.
  • In the past 5 years, 70% of superintendent placements are still serving in their selected positions.
  • Conduct teambuilding activities for the new leadership team.
  • Following placement of the superintendent – the School Board may consider a free MSBA workshop “Effective Practices for Positive Board and Superintendent Relations.
  • Since its inception in 1984, MSBA has assisted hundreds of local boards in employing leaders who meet district-specific needs and who positively impact the education of all students.
