Ridgewood Board of Education Initiates Superintendent Search Process

The Ridgewood Board of Education has initiated a search for a successor Superintendent of Schools and invites community members to be part of this process. The Board has retained the services of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA), a consulting firm that specializes in assisting school boards in identifying and recruiting executive level educational leaders. HYA will assist and counsel the Board through the four-phase search process, which includes engagement, recruitment, selection, and transition.  

The engagement phase consists of designing and planning a process of engaging the Board and stakeholders through interviews, online surveys and focus groups. Information from these interactions will assist the Board in developing a leadership profile and selection criterion that match the priorities of the community and that meet the unique needs of the students who are served through the Ridgewood School District.

HYA’s disciplined, inclusive, and research-based approach will be designed to ensure all stakeholders have an opportunity to be part of the search process and will provide valuable feedback about the school district that will assist the search firm in better understanding our district in the broader marketplace.

Community members, parents, and staff are invited to participate
in the "ALL CALL" Community Forum on Monday, November 14, 2022 at 6 PM.
