GSBA To Conduct Search

  • At its March 18, 2021, meeting, the Gwinnett County Board of Education voted to acquire the services of Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) in its search for the school district’s next superintendent. Selecting a superintendent of schools is one of the most important functions of a local board of education. GSBA’s search service is uniquely qualified to assist in conducting a highly specialized, well-organized search that will attract quality candidates. GSBA’s professional search team will advise the board during every step in the search process, assisting in responding to requests for information, establishing a search timeline, seeking community input, establishing selection criteria, advertising the announcement of vacancy, checking references, providing interview training, facilitating candidate interviews and finalizing the selection process.
