Superintendent Search

Members of the school board are working diligently to hire the next highly qualified Osseo Area Schools superintendent. At its Dec. 19 special meeting, the board contracted with School Exec Connect, a national search firm that specializes in supporting school boards in hiring leadership positions. The district’s next superintendent is expected to be selected this spring to allow for a smooth transition in leadership.

Leadership profile

Late December, many staff, families and community members shared what they believe our district should be looking for and/or considering in relation to our next superintendent – preferred skills, qualities and traits. A leadership profile was created as a result of this feedback. It's now being shared with potential candidates and will aide in each step of the search process.
