Switching gears and pursuing a hiring consultant to select a new superintendent could be a topic the Los Alamos Public Schools board discuss during a work session this month. The board discussed the benefits of a hiring consulting during its regular meeting Tuesday.Current superintendent Jim Anderson, who will retire in June, recommended discussing this avenue of hiring a new administrator. Board secretary Kenneth Johnson asked if the board agrees to a hiring consultant, when should a Request For Proposal (RFP) be sent out.Anderson said it would not be hard to put out a RFP; the only hard part would be adding in the services unique to the district. “I’m sure one of the things you want is more qualified applicants,” he said. Board president Steve Girrens asked how the board should continue the community involvement in the selection process. Johnson noted when a school district in Albuquerque underwent a superintendent search, a screening committee seemed to “function fairly well.” Girrens and Anderson both suggested possibly getting input from a cross-section of people or from a variety of groups, such as teachers.
