Just for You!

MSBA tailors every search to meet individual school district and community needs. Our experienced superintendent search consultants have decades of school board and administrative experience. They know how school boards operate and can advise local boards regarding options for finding the right person for the district. Once options are presented, all decisions regarding how the search process will be conducted are made by the local board.
