Wenatchee School District Superintendent Search Sunny Hemphill

Over the next two months, the Wenatchee School Board, working collaboratively with our district's dedicated staff and with the community, will choose Wenatchee School District's new Superintendent. That choice will be central to the direction of Wenatchee School District going into the future.
Hazard, Young, Attea Associates (HYA), a national educational search firm, is conducting the search for our district's new Superintendent, narrowing the field of candidates. The finalists will be in Wenatchee for interviews with the board and engagement with the community. 
We need you to be part of the process. Your voice is key -- this is your school district.
