Board of Education Extends the Deadline For Search Firm Requests for Proposals

June 14, 2021

On May 3, 2021, the Montgomery County Board of Education issued a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) to hire a search firm to assist in the superintendent selection process. Proposal submissions were initially due on June 3, 2021. The Board of Education has extended the deadline and will continue to accept proposals until June 24, 2021.

A search firm will assist the Board of Education with key pieces of the national search process including: articulating the qualifications for a superintendent; facilitating a process for community input and engagement’ identifying and fielding a pool of highly qualified candidates; coordinating the interview process; helping to narrow down a field of candidates; and advising on an appropriate compensation package.

The Board appointed Deputy Superintendent Dr. Monifa B. McKnight to serve as acting/interim superintendent for the next year, until June 30, 2022. 

The Board expects to finalize its selection of a search firm this summer.
