Dear District Staff and Community Members:

Dr. Lynette Zimmer announced her departure from District 46 at the end of the 2013-2014 school year. The Board of Education would like to take this opportunity to thank her for her service to our District over the past four years. 

We entered into the search for a new superintendent and selected SCHOOL EXEC CONNECT, an educational search firm, to assist us in this process.

We are interested in receiving your input about the new superintendent. We would appreciate if you would take about five minutes to fill out the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PrairieGrove

A survey was offered to receive input about a new superintendent.   The consultants also conducted face-to-face one hour small group meetings. On March 5 all staff were invited to attend a meeting either at 2:45 pm or 3:30 pm in the Junior High Library. Parents/Community members were welcome to attend a meeting on  March 5 at 6:00 pm. Findings from the survey and group meetings were reported at the March Board of Education Meeting.

Moving forward, our most important consideration was securing the strongest candidate pool and ultimately the best person to lead our District. All those involved in the search are holding candidate names confidential throughout the process. The Administrators' Committee and Staff/Parent/Community Committees will be interviewing the final two candidates and share their feedback to the Board of Education. 

The Administrators' Committee includes: Anna Kasprzyk, Business Manager; Nicole Motl, Curriculum Coordinator; Vic Wight, K-8 Principal; Martha Maggiore, K-8 Assistant Principal; and Scott Martin, Technology Systems Manager. 

Members of the Staff/Parent/Community Committee include: Peggy Page, Teacher; Kathy Krepel, Teacher, Paulina Levy, Teacher; Wendy Cahir, Teacher; Laurie Jaeger, Elementary Social Worker; Kim Kimble, Support Staff; Valerie Kulovsek, Support Staff; Kara Simpson, Parent; Tara Marineau, Parent; Kelly Werle, Parent;, and Christina Roth, Parent.

The Board of Education appreciates all of the support and assistance with this very important undertaking. Please feel free to contact the consultants assisting us if you have any questions or comments regarding the search: Dr. Jill Hawk jhawk9790@gmail.com or Dr. Brad Hawk, bhawkdad@yahoo.com.

We look forward in our search for a new superintendent to lead Prairie Grove District 46.

Sincerely,

The Board of Education
