Component school districts can save the cost of hiring a private consultant to fill superintendent vacancies. More importantly, they can turn to someone who knows these districts well and understands their needs. The District Superintendent goes through an extensive process of helping school boards develop selection criteria. In many cases, this involves meetings with different staff and community groups. The District Superintendent also takes responsibility for developing and mailing out a brochure describing the position, placing advertisements in various newspapers and journals, screening applicants, selecting a slate of finalists and assisting the board in setting up a process for interviews.
