The search for new school leader begins at Conestoga.
Three firms had submitted proposals for assisting in the search for a new school superintendent. FGR Group, McPherson and Jacobson, and Nebraska Association of School Boards Director of Superintendent Search Services provided information at the September board of education meeting. Bids were then reviewed and references checked by school board members.
At the October meeting, the Conestoga Board of Education unanimously approved the hiring of FGR Group, say meeting minutes.
FGR Group’s facilitation fee is $3,900. Additional fees include advertisement, telephone charges, postage and mileage.
The board accepted the resignation of current superintendent Mark Sievering about two months ago. Sievering will continue as superintendent until June 30th, 2012.
The board’s plan is to choose the new superintendent in early 2012.
