Interviews are scheduled to be conducted the week of April 22, 2019. Numerous stakeholder groups will have the opportunity to meet the final candidates and submit input to the board about each candidate. The Board intends to make their selection by April 26, 2019.

The Waukee CSD retained the services of McPherson & Jacobson L.L.C. to assist in conducting their search. The consultants reviewed, screened, and conducted extensive background checks on 21 applicants. On Monday, April 15, the consultants presented the applicants to the Board of Education and provided them detailed background information on each applicant.

After the superintendent has been hired, the consultants will facilitate a Board/Superintendent workshop to assist in the establishment of performance objectives for the new superintendent.
