Aledo ISD board reviewing search firms in hiring process

February 21, 2013 by Randy Keck

From the Aledo ISD

The Aledo ISD Board of Trustees is interviewing executive search firms to begin the process of finding a replacement for current Superintendent Dan Manning. Retirement was deemed best for Mr. Manning’s long-term health after surgery in 2012 to remove one of his kidneys. His retirement is effective June 28, 2013.

A decision of the search firm should be reached during the month of March, at which time the superintendent position will be posted. The firm will likely interview AISD staff, students and community members to discern the needs of the district, and to complete a profile of prospective candidates. Subsequent interviewing will occur in the coming months, and a final decision reached before the end of June. This timeline will give the new superintendent time to ready for the 2013-14 school year.

AISD Board President Bobby Rigues said, “One of the greatest responsibilities a school board has involves the hiring of a superintendent of schools. Our district has grown in size to the point that professional guidance in this area is being respected. Once a particular firm is chosen by the board, the overall hiring process will include input from administration, district staff and community representatives. Mr. Manning’s leadership throughout this process is invaluable. We also appreciate his commitment to completing the district’s 2012-13 educational goals.”
