Wenatchee School District Superintendent Search
Wenatchee School District has begun the search for a new superintendent. In August 2019, Superintendent Brian Flones will leave the district after 19 years of distinguished and successful leadership. The school board, in collaboration with our community, will identify the qualities needed in a new superintendent who can lead our district in equity, excellence, and innovation.
The Wenatchee School Board is proud of the district’s progress. We are extraordinarily fortunate to have effective and caring educators and staff, as well as strong relationships with our labor partners, local business and industry, and with our community. The next superintendent will need to build on our success, address the opportunities and challenges of our district, and lead our schools to even higher levels of excellence.
We need your input. We want to know what leadership qualities, expertise and experiences matter most to you in a superintendent. This presents an opportunity for the community to engage in the search. Our community has changed over the last several decades and we look forward to hearing what matters to our families, partners, students, and staff. The School Board has contracted with Hazard, Young, Attea Associates (HYA), a national educational search firm, to conduct the extensive search for our new Superintendent.
The Board will be collaborating with HYA on a schedule that will stakeholder meetings and online surveys during the month of October. We want to hear from you. Please reach out to offer your insight into this important process.
Thank you in advance for engaging in this important process. It is an honor to serve as your Wenatchee School Board President.
