The Executive Director of Academics Search Ad Hoc Committee has identified the top three candidates to move forward with the next steps in the hiring process. The committee was comprised of 10 teachers, 5 support staff, 3 members of administration, 1 Adams12 district representative, 2 Stargate board members, and 1 Stargate Accountability Committee member. We had nearly 80 people apply for the position and the Ad Hoc Committee reviewed and ranked 31 qualified applicants. The Ad Hoc Committee then interviewed 7 candidates and voted on the three finalists. The candidates were evaluated based on community feedback regarding the following characteristics: Administration/Higher Level Leadership Experience, Gifted Education Experience, Curriculum and Instruction Experience, Community Outreach and Engagement, Social Emotional Learning, Charter School Experience, Special Education Experience, Strategic Planning Experience.
