June 8, 2022 | Interim Superintendent Search
As the school year comes to a close and we look forward to summer, the School District of Menomonee Falls Board of Education would like to thank our students, staff, and families for their hard work this school year; we are proud of your accomplishments.
Although the School District of Menomonee Falls is currently experiencing a great deal of change, we are excited to share that we continue to make progress in filing administrator vacancies from retirements and resignations. The District recently welcomed a new Director of Finance, a new Director of Technology, and a new Principal at North Middle School. Interviews are in progress for the Director of Curriculum and Learning, the Director of Pupil Services, and the Associate Principal at North Middle School. Hiring a new principal at Valley View will also begin soon. Our goal is to secure desired candidates before the end of the month.
As you know, Superintendent Golla recently submitted his resignation. Choosing the next district leader is a critical and lengthy process. The Board of Education for the School District of Menomonee Falls has decided to work with a professional search firm to hire an experienced interim Superintendent for the 2022-2023 school year. This will allow us the time and opportunity to search for an ideal permanent Superintendent that maximizes the best candidate pool, aligns with industry norms and ensures a Superintendent is in place for the 2023-2024 school year.
So, what does our process of hiring a superintendent involve?
- Board will meet with several Superintendent search firms to determine which firm best fits our objective to hire an experienced interim Superintendent
- Board will work with the firm to determine the qualities Menomonee Falls would like in the next permanent Superintendent.
- Board will collect input from various stakeholder groups - SDMF families, staff, business owners, and community members. We need your feedback to help us determine what our mighty village needs! Of course, you may email your thoughts and suggestions to any or all board members at any time!
- Survey results will be compiled and reviewed by the search firm and Board to create a candidate profile or a “wish-list.
- Superintendent search begins!
We are committed to sharing every step of this journey with the community. All planning and most meetings that accompany the activities described above will be open to the community. We encourage you to join us; however, we realize that time availability is a challenge, so we created a Superintendent Search web page for you to access information.
We thank Superintendent Golla for his service and wish him the best of luck at Wauwatosa West. He leaves us with a legacy of continuous improvement, all while pushing students to strive for academic success.
Have a safe start to summer, and we will be in touch soon,
