Tenino begins search for new superintendent

The Chronicle (Centralia)May 4, 2014 

The Tenino School District is moving quickly to select the candidate who will lead its school district from July onward.

The Tenino School Board has scheduled several meetings in connection to the search for a superintendent to replace Russell Pickett. The first will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the school district boardroom. It mainly will consist of an executive session, but the board might move into open session to instruct a consultant to arrange interviews.

Board members also have scheduled an executive session for May 10 to conduct preliminary interviews to evaluate applicants’ qualifications. The board could name finalists for the position in an open session that evening.

Community members will be invited to a series of open forums with finalists beginning at 6 p.m. May 13-15 at Tenino Middle School.

A final meeting is planned for May 27.

Pickett is leaving to become superintendent of schools in Monroe, Oregon. The Tenino School district hired him in 2008.
