School Board Selects Firm to Lead Superintendent Search

The Carlisle School Board conducted interviews with three superintendent search firms at a Special School Board meeting on March 7th. The district heard proposals from the following search firms:

• Grundmeyer Leader Search
• McPherson & Jacobson, LLC
• Ray & Associates, Inc

The Board unanimously voted to select Grundmeyer Leader Seach to lead the effort to search for the next superintendent of the district.

The process of selecting the district’s next superintendent will begin this month. Stakeholder input will be collected from various groups, including staff, parents, students, and community members. This input will be collected and used by the search firm to identify the desired qualities for the new superintendent. Grundmeyer Leader Search is confident in meeting the district’s goal of naming the next superintendent during the month of April.

The Carlisle School Board and Grundmeyer Leader Search look forward to working with school district stakeholders on selecting Carlisle’s next superintendent. Thank you for your continued support of our school district.

The Carlisle School Board approved the 2021-22 Return to School Plan at the July 12, 2021 school board meeting. The operational plans for the 2021-22 school year are based on available guidance from state/local public health experts and Iowa Code. Our goal at Carlisle CSD is to have our students back in our school buildings in the fall while also making sure that we are doing everything we can to protect the health of everyone in our schools.

Carlisle CSD will be offering full on-site instruction for all students in the district’s four buildings for the 2021-22 school year. This plan will be re-evaluated and updated as necessary based on guidance from the Iowa Department of Public Health and Department of Education.
