Superintendent Search

Selecting a superintendent is the most important decision a board of education will make. That is why Fox River Grove CSD 3 Board of Education has selected to employ the most experienced and professional assistance possible when making this critical decision. The Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) has successfully conducted nationwide superintendent searches for member districts for more than 50 years. Through their extensive network and outreach, position vacancies reach and attract quality candidates from across the nation and around the globe. IASB established a timeline for the process.  Our timeline is as follows:

  • Announcement of Vacancy created: August 2022

  • Application Deadline: October 11, 2022 by Noon (CST)

  • Candidates Presented to Board: October 2022

  • Board Interviews Candidates: November 2022

  • New Superintendent Appointed: November/December 2022

  • New Superintendent Begins: July 1, 2023

The Superintendent Search Survey* can be accessed here and will close on September 23rd. This feedback will assist the board and IASB in the screening process and in developing interview topics. We ask that you only complete the survey once. If you have already completed the survey via the link sent in an email in August, please do not complete it again.

*The survey provided is used statewide, and was developed in consideration of the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders. It identifies traits/skills needed for educational leader success, and forces participants to choose those most significant to them.  Results will be updated again once survey results are obtained from IASB.
