Superintendent Search

The Ridgefield Park School District Board of Education has initiated a search for a successor Superintendent of Schools.  To assist and counsel the Board through this process, we have retained the services of Hazard, Young Attea & Associates (HYA), a consulting firm that specializes in assisting school boards in identifying and recruiting executive level educational leaders.

There are four phases to the HYA search process.  Those phases are engagement, recruitment, selection, and transition.  The engagement phase consists of designing and planning a process of engaging the Board and stakeholders through interviews, online surveys and focus groups. Information from these interactions will assist the Board in developing a leadership profile and selection criterion that match the priorities of our community and that meet the unique needs of the students who are served through the Ridgefield Park School District.  This disciplined, inclusive, and research-based approach will be designed to ensure all stakeholders have an opportunity to be part of the search process and will provide valuable feedback about the school district that will assist the search firm in better understanding our district in the broader marketplace.

The Board of Education would like to offer an additional opportunity for community members to participate in the superintendent hiring process. They understand that the zoom and in-person events scheduled for last week may not have been convenient for some.  As a result, we have been asked to re-open the Community Survey in order to gain as much input as possible from community members. The Board sincerely wishes to know your opinions. Please do not pass up this opportunity to be part of the process.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
