Superintendent Search Information

2020-21 Superintendent Search Timeline and Process


One of the most important decisions that a school board makes is to hire a new superintendent. As a long time member of the South Central Service Cooperative, Lake Crystal/Wellcome Memorial School Board has decided to use the Cooperative’s Superintendent Search Program to help facilitate the search for a new superintendent. The timeline for the superintendent search is as follows:


Timeline Activity

November 16 thru December 2020 Board planning, engaging the community/staff/students through an     on-line survey and zoom meetings, creating a profile of attributes for the new superintendent.


November 18 to January 11, 2021 Advertise, recruit, and accept applications.


January 11 to January 21, 2021 Screen candidates and complete the first round of interviews.


January 26 to January 28, 2021 Conduct final interviews, possible site visits, Board offer.


 February 16, 2021 Action on new superintendent contract.


A very important component of the search process is to seek staff, student, parent, and community input into the creation of a profile of attributes that a new superintendent should possess to be successful in the Lake Crystal/Wellcome Memorial School District. 


Your engagement in the search process will be greatly appreciated by the Lake Crystal/Wellcome Memorial School Board. If you have any questions about the search timeline or process please contact Ed Waltman, South Central Service Cooperative, at or visit with a member of the Lake Crystal/Wellcome Memorial School Board.
