During its special meeting Thursday, September 15, 2022, the LPS Board of Education interviewed the following two superintendent search firm finalists:
Board members noted that both firms were highly skilled and had solid processes. After interviews and deliberation, the Board took action to hire Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA) to facilitate finding the next LPS superintendent. There was consensus among Board members that HYA has exceptional processes and experience, detailed timelines, and greater accessibility, which make them a better fit for LPS.
Board members thanked representatives from both firms who were present in person and virtually during interviews.
The Board of Education will meet with HYA to create an LPS profile, develop a specific timeline for community input, plan vacancy postings, and outline the interview/selection process.
The following superintendent search firms submitted proposals to the Board of Education:
The Board reviewed proposals in open session during its meeting September 8, 2022 (watch here). The Board interviewed search firm finalists in open session during a special Board of Education meeting on September 15, 2022 (watch here).
