Off and On: Search needs to be highest priority

-A A +A
By Ralph Damiani

There is a very important process going on right now – a search for a new superintendent.In all honesty, this may be the most important hire this community makes for a long time. And we must do it right.We understand that saying that is easy, but what does it mean?We think that it means, at the very least, doing all that we can to go out and get the very best person out there, with no holding back.And we feel that the school board is doing just that.This community – and school board – must understand they have a tremendous bargain in current superintendent Jim Anderson. He has helped lead this district to the heights it is at, to be one of the premier school districts in the nation.That effort must continue. But it won’t unless we can attract the kind of leader, with the right background and experience, to continue this upward drive.So we add our voice to those who are expressing concern over the announced salary by the board of $130,000.
