Board will select search firm Saturday

On Saturday, April 13, the Central Kitsap School Board will hold a special session to hear presentations from two search firms that connect districts with superintendent candidates.

Michael Boring from McPherson & Jacobson and Dennis Ray from Northwest Leadership Associates will present for their respective companies in front of the board and any interested community members.

McPherson & Jacobson helped the North Kitsap School District in its search for a new superintendent last year. Northwest Leadership Associates helped South Kitsap in its search this February. It was also the firm that connected CKSD with out-going Superintendent Greg Lynch 9 years ago and connected him with the service district during this year.

The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. After both firms have presented the board will deliberate and approve one of the firms to facilitate the district's search process.

The board on Wednesday accepted Superintendent Lynch's resignation at its regularly scheduled meeting. He will be leaving at the end of June to begin his new job as superintendent of the Olympic Educational Service District 114.

By law, the district must have a superintendent in place on July 1 when Lynch leaves. Whether or not that position is filled by a full-time or interim candidate remains to be seen.
