Cassia trustees seek help in superintendent’s search

Cassia County trustees are seeking outside help as they launch their search for a new superintendent.

The district is working with the Idaho School Boards Association on the search, the Twin Falls Times-News reported Tuesday.

“We will soon be sending out a survey to community and staff soliciting input regarding the requirements and characteristics of the next superintendent,” school board chairman Ryan Cranney said in a statement to the Times-News. “The board feels it is extremely important to include as many stakeholders in this process as possible.”

Trustees hope to have a new superintendent in place by the end of the school year, the Times-News reported.

Current Superintendent Gaylen Smyer announced his retirement in April, but said he would stay on through 2017-18.
