Re:            Superintendent Search – Stakeholder District Visit


The Shickley School Board is working diligently to prepare for the task of hiring a permanent superintendent. Hiring a superintendent is one of the most important endeavors a board must face; therefore, we will approach this task with attention to each vital detail necessary to ensure a rewarding and successful search. It is our goal to hire a quality and competent administrator to continue to lead the district forward in the years to come.


As the board plans for the hire, we value and seek the input of patrons, parents, students, staff, and administrators. The Nebraska Association of School Boards (NASB) is assisting the board in the superintendent search and has scheduled a visit to our school and public on Tuesday, November 30, 2021. They will be visiting with those patrons and community members who wish to meet in person at 5:30 p.m. in the School Lobby. The board extends an invitation to the staff and public to participate in this visit to share personal thoughts regarding the district and the superintendent position.


You may also offer your comments or suggestions pertaining to skills, qualities, or characteristics the candidate might possess to be successful in his or her role as superintendent and your views about the strengths of the school district and public by submitting your personal comments via one of the following methods:
