    Board of School Directors

    Superintendent Search Process

    March 26, 2024

     

    The Central Bucks School District (CBSD) Board of School Directors is pleased to provide the community with a status report regarding the recent announcement concerning the District’s Superintendent of Schools.

     

    To begin the search process for a new Superintendent, the Board reached out to the Bucks County Intermediate Unit (Bucks IU), our county’s regional educational service agency, to assist the Board with the search for a new Superintendent. The Bucks County IU has assisted in many successful Superintendent searches for area school districts, and since CBSD is a Bucks County School district, located in the service area of the Bucks IU, there is no fee for this service.

     

    As a part of the search process, the Central Bucks Board of School Directors solicited feedback from students, staff, and community members using a survey to gather information on the traits, characteristics, and priorities stakeholders are seeking in their next Superintendent. The survey results can be found here

     

    Applications for the position of Superintendent were accepted until Sunday March 24, 2024.  Applicants are now being screened to begin the interview process, with initial interviews of candidates to occur in April and May. The Board’s goal is to name a new Superintendent before June 30, 2024.

     

    The CBSD School Directors will continue to provide periodic updates to the Central Bucks community on the search process. A community forum, to introduce the new Superintendent, will be arranged and announced once the final selection is completed.

     

    Thank you,

     

    The Central Bucks School District Board of School Directors
