Monday evening the Gladbrook-Reinbeck School Board met in special session and accepted the resignation of Supt. Tim Kuehl, effective June 30, 2013. Kuehl will become the new superintendent at Clear Creek Amana. He served the G-R District five years. The board has been very happy with the changes that happened during his five years, one being the Western Outreach Center.
G Tyron & Associates has been hired to help in the search for Kuehl's replacement. Stan Slessor attended Monday night's meeting and shared comments and the process they will use to select applicants. Several focus groups will be used - administrators, staff, patrons and board members - to help develop the profile, which will list qualities and strengths.
Slessor said that he and Gaylord Tyron will start advertising for the position immediately and plans are to select four semi-finalists with the board on Wednesday, May 22nd and will interview the four candidates on Thursday, May 23rd.
The board discussed individuals they would like to have serve on the focus groups and they will be contacted.
On Wednesday, May 29th the board/focus groups will interview two finalists.
