Letter to Stakeholders


May 22, 2018


Dear ROCORI School District 750 Stakeholders:


The ROCORI School District 750 Board of Education has contracted with School Exec Connect, a superintendent search firm, to assist with the search for a new superintendent.  Board members want you to be informed of the process that we will be following as we conduct the search for a new superintendent.  Additionally, we hope that you will give your input to assist us in making the best selection possible.


To begin the process, the School Exec Connect consultants, Dr. Kenneth (Ken) Dragseth and Dr. David Vick will meet with board members, school staff, parents, students and community members individually and in focus groups in the next couple of weeks to determine the challenges, strengths, goals of our district and what characteristics or skills you would like to see in a superintendent.  Additionally, our staff and community members will have the opportunity to give confidential written feedback to the consultants via our website.  Using this information, we will develop a profile of the desired skills and characteristics in the next superintendent.


The position will be advertised, and candidates will be recruited nationally from May 22 until June 30.   On July 9 the Board and consultants will meet to review and select candidates to be initially interviewed.  The Board will interview four to six recommended candidates on July 10 and narrow the field to two or three finalists.  The next round of individual interviews will occur on July 11, 12 and 13 if necessary.  Each candidate will be invited for an all-day interview process including open forums that will be available to staff, students and community members and a final formal Board interview.  The Board will ask staff, students and community to provide input into the selection.  You will be able to do this by participating in an open question and answer session with each candidate and filling in a feedback sheet to be shared with the Board.  We plan to act on the new superintendent’s contract in July. 


You may choose to give your confidential feedback to us by accessing the survey here or at the link above this article.   All replies will be confidential.  Please submit feedback by June 6.


Please feel free to contact Ken Dragseth (952-210-2790) or David Vick (847-343-0039), if you have any questions regarding the search.  We look forward to your assistance in this search process and believe that your input will help us make the best possible choice for your next superintendent.
