Superintendent Search Fort Collins, Colorado

The Board of Education hired education consulting firm Hazard Young Attea & Associates (HYA) to conduct a nationwide search and identify strong candidates. The school board will ultimately decide whom to hire as PSD’s next top leader. 

HYA will compile input gathered from the survey, forums and invite-only focus groups and create a leadership profile report that will be presented at the Board of Education’s public Feb. 9 meeting. 

The board is planning to conduct phone interviews with initial candidates from mid-February to mid-March. By late March, the Board of Education  will identify preferred finalists and conduct another round of interviews. The Board plans to name a sole finalist by mid-April and intends for the new superintendent to assume the role by July 1, 2021. 


Survey  

The Board of Education wants to hear what you think the district’s and schools’ strengths are, what challenges PSD currently faces, what the new leader’s priorities should be, as well as what professional and personal characteristics you would like our next superintendent to possess.  

The survey, which is available in English and Spanish, takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be available until Jan. 22.
