Superintendent Search Interviews to be Held

West Bloomfield School Board to host candidates over two days this weekend.

Superintendent Search Interviews to be Held

The search for the West Bloomfield School District's new superintendent should become a lot clearer after this weekend.

The Board of Education announced Tuesday that interviews would be held at the center building at 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday in order to find a replacement for the retiring JoAnn Andrees.

Information about the number of candidates being interviewed and who they are will be available later in the week, said district officials. 

The interviews are part of a monthslong search process the district has undertaken in order to find a new superintendent. In March, the board held a special board meeting in order to narrow down search criteria with firm Ray & Associates and established the incoming superintendent's annual salary at approximately $190,000. 

The firm also established that the new superintendent will:

  • demonstrate strong leadership skills in previous positions.
  • be able to delegate authority appropriately while maintaining accountability.
  • have experience in the management of district resources and knowledge of sound fiscal procedures.

Due to the need to schedule the interviews, check the  district's website to verify that the meeting times have not changed.
