Superintendent Interview Advisory Panel

December 5, 2006

The Enumclaw School District Board of Directors is seeking individuals to serve on the Superintendent Interview Advisory Panel on January 30 and 31, 2007, starting at 4:00 p.m., in the school district boardroom.  While school board members will be conducting the interviews, each member of the Interview Advisory Panel will have the opportunity to listen and individually reflect on each candidate’s responses.  The input you provide will help the board select three finalist candidates to return for final interviews.  For the school board to gain the best possible information about each candidate, panelists must be able to attend both days of interviews. 

The Board of Directors has asked various community groups, including parent groups at each school, to nominate representatives to the panel.  Board members will then select up to five additional members from community members indicating an interest in serving to complete the panel.  Community members interested in being considered for inclusion on the Interview Advisory Panel should obtain an application form at the district office and/or contact Gerrie Garton (phone 360.802.7105) or email by January 15, 2007.  The school board will review all candidates and will attempt to appoint 12 to 15 community members who represent a balance of viewpoints and interests.  All candidates will be notified of their selection or non-selection by January 25, 2007.  If selected, panel members need to arrive at 3:30 p.m. for the orientation prior to the interview that will begin at 4 p.m.  There will be three to four interviews each day, with the last interview ending at approximately 10 p.m.  A light dinner will be provided both evenings.
