Superintendent Search: Cover Letters and First Round Schedule

March 13, 2011

The candidates for Superintendent included cover letters with their resumes.  The full cover letters can be found on the Rochester Community Schools website.  They often reveal more about the priorities and beliefs of a candidate than their resumes.  Resumes and job history can be found in my previous post Superintendent Search: Resumes.

As referenced in Patch, the schedule for the first round of interviews at the Rochester Community Schools Administration Building is:

Monday, March 14:
6 p.m.: Thomas Harwood, assistant superintendent for human resources and labor relations, Grosse Pointe Public Schools
7:30 p.m.: Karl Paulson, superintendent, Lakeview Public Schools (St. Clair Shores)

Wednesday, March 16
6 p.m.: Geraldine Moore, assistant superintendent for instruction, Rochester Community Schools
7:30 p.m.: Gary Richards, superintendent, Imlay City Schools

Thursday, March 17
6 p.m.: Frederick Clarke, superintendent Albion Public Schools
7:30 p.m.: Paul DeAngelis, deputy superintendent for educational services, Birmingham Public Schools

The interviews are open to the public and comment forms will be available after the interviews.  While the interviews will be broadcast on the district cable station beginning at 8 AM on March 20, I do not know if they will be available via webcast earlier.

Comment regarding the selection of the Superintendent can be emailed to the Board of Education at (My email to this address did get kicked back, so you may want to use their website contact form.)

    This process has been surprisingly open and transparent – which is fantastic!

    I’m concerned that, while the interviews are being taped and rebroadcast – they will start the rebroadcasts after the school board has already made their decisions on finalists. Folks will send in their feedback to the board for candidates who are no longer in the running for the job.
