Expectations

Arrow Educational Services, Inc. will work with the board, employees and community in developing a profile of the personal and professional qualities and qualifications desired in a superintendent.  From this profile, Arrow will recruit proven, highly successful educators for the position of superintendent.  This will be done through personal contacts and advertisements on statewide and national job placement boards, internet sites, universities, service centers, and individual district contacts.

We will work closely with the board during the entire process.  This includes advertising the position, screening of applicants, full reference checks, and assistance in developing the offer of employment to the top candidate.  We also schedule interviews and work directly with the board on interview protocol, candidate questions and all other aspects of the search.
