Superindendent Search and District Needs Asssessment

Story image 1_0


The Ainsworth School Board recently accepted the retirement notice of Mr. Darrell Peterson, Superintendent of Schools.  We are grateful for Mr. Peterson’s service to Ainsworth Community Schools and wish him well in his future endeavors.


The Board of Education is working diligently to prepare for the charge of hiring a superintendent.  Hiring a superintendent is one of the most important endeavors a board must face; therefore, we will approach this task with fervent attention to each vital detail necessary to ensure a rewarding and successful search.  It is our goal to hire a quality and competent administrator to continue to lead the district forward in the years to come. 


As the board plans for the hire, we value and seek the input of patrons, parents, students, staff and administrators.  The Nebraska Association of School Boards is assisting the board in the superintendent search, and has scheduled a visit to our community on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.  The board extends an invitation to the staff and community to participate in this visit to share personal thoughts regarding the district and the superintendent position.  Please offer suggestions pertaining to skills, qualities, or characteristics the candidate might possess in order to be successful in his or her role as superintendent and your views about the strengths of the school district and community.  The Staff/Community visit schedule is attached for your reference. 


In the event you are unable to attend the visit, please feel free to share your comments to the following questions:

1.  What are the strengths and achievements of the Ainsworth school district and
What critical issues will the district face in the next three years? 
3.  What background/training/experience should the new superintendent possess?

4.  What leadership style/personal attributes are important in the new superintendent?
