The Rochester City School District Board of Education recently hired an Illinois-based search firm to assist in replacing Superintendent Barbara Deane-Williams, who will retire Jan. 31.
According to information from the RCSD, the board of education hired BWP & Associates in November to help in the superintendent search process. The agency is currently working to create a leadership profile for the job based on feedback it will collect from the district and the public throughout January. Feedback will be obtained through online surveys; engagement events with the community as well as RCSD staff, parents and students; open community forums; and meetings with school board members.
According to the district, the agency will present a community engagement report to the school board by the end of January, and the district will receive a leadership profile to approve. Once it receives approval, BWP will advertise and begin to recruit for the position. The application deadline will be March 10.
