February 20, 2019 at 3:30 PM - February Special Called Meeting

Call to Order

Adopt & Approve the Main Agenda

TSBA Superintendent Search Service Plans
Speaker(s):  Mr. Randy Bennett

Mr. Randy Bennett with the Tennessee School Board Association (TSBA) discussed the TSBA Superintendent Search Service Plans that are available to districts that are in search for new directors.

Mr. Bennett provided the board with a packet from TSBA and discussed the materials enclosed. TSBA asks that Boards of Education adopt a timeline to provide direction as to where they want to go and to ensure  having a director in place by July 1, 2019.

The cost for service using Plan 1 is $6,500. Plan 2 is $11,500 and provides all the services of Plan 1 plus the conduction of employee meetings and community meetings, individual interviews with each board member, reporting results of community meetings to the board, and recommending criteria to be adopted by the board. 

 Mr. Bennett stated that TSBA has a large network with endless opportunities and candidates. If the board approves to use a TSBA Superintendent Search Service Plan, the top four or five best candidates would be presented to the board and the process would continue until a director was found. He also encouraged any local candidates to apply thru the TSBA website. 

In closing, Mr. Bennett reminded the board that the entire process is subject to the Sunshine and Open Meetings laws and moving forward, everything must remain public knowledge.
