The Juneau School Board has selected a national search firm to find the school district’s next superintendent.
The board voted Tuesday to authorize board President Sally Saddler to contract Ray and Associates, which is based in Iowa with an office in Tacoma, Wash. The firm’s base fee is $16,000, which doesn’t include travel costs.
In its proposal, the firm outlines its five-stage process which includes seeking input from constituents and stakeholders.
Besides Ray and Associates, the board considered proposals from firms based in Illinois and Nebraska, as well as the Juneau-based Alaska Association of School Boards. Cost estimates from the firms ranged from $9,000 to $37,000.
Superintendent Glenn Gelbrich is leaving the district at the end of June for personal and private reasons. The board accepted Gelbrich’s resignation last week. Gelbrich joined the Juneau school district in 2009.
