Ann Arbor moves ahead on search for new superintendent

An application deadline of Jan. 25, 2011 has been set to accept applications for a new superintendent for the Ann Arbor Public Schools.

After applications have been reviewed and preliminary interviews conducted by Ray & Associates, the consulting firm hired to assist the board in the process, the names of the semifinalists will be presented to the Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education for consideration. According to a tentative timeline, this could occur in early February.

The school board will select candidates for final interviews and may elect to visit the home communities of the finalists; community members may also be involved in the interview phase. The school board has said it will have a candidate in place before the next school year, which begins July 1, 2011.

The superintendent will replace Todd Roberts, who recently left the district for an executive education post in North Carolina. Robert Allen is serving as the interim superintendent.
