Last week, trustees with the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District zeroed in on the consulting firms they want to hear from before hiring the one that will conduct the superintendent's search.
And the winners are: The Cosca Group; Dave Long & Associates; Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates; and Leadership Associates.
You may remember that the consulting firm trustees retained last time did not seem very thorough when vetting its candidates. So the right consulting firm is crucial. If you're inclined to hear them personally, they're scheduled to make a presentation on Dec. 11.
Incidentally, trustees continue to seek community input for the qualities everyone wants to see on a new superintendent, and they continue to announce a survey will be launched soon to gather more community input. I checked late Monday, and the survey was still not posted, but you never know. If you want to see if it's out yet, check it out here.
And the wheels keep turning...
