The Jeffco School Board announced today that they have selected Ray and Associates, Inc. to conduct the search for a new Jeffco Schools superintendent.

The item will be officially approved as part of the consent agenda at a special board meeting scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 27.

The school board heard presentations and interviewed two firms — Ray and Associates and ProAct — at their Feb. 18 special meeting.

Both firms have conducted superintendent searches in Colorado and across the nation. Ray and Associates offered a two-year guarantee and a flat cost of $44,580, while ProAct offered a one-year guarantee at a flat cost of $25,000.

Ray and Associates local superintendent searches include placements for the Boulder Valley, Colorado Springs 11, Mesa County Valley 51, Pueblo 60, and Adams County 50 districts.

ProAct has conducted local superintendent searches for the Adams 12 and Aurora school districts.

According to their presentation, the search process will include an online survey, open forums, board-identified group meetings and individual board member interviews. The firm told the school board it was open to recruiting traditional and non-traditional candidates for the position.

Ray and Associates proposed a timeline in which the board would begin interviewing candidates in April.

Superintendent Cindy Stevenson’s last day is Feb. 21. The board approved a transition plan at the Feb. 18 meeting in which five chief officers of the district will report directly to the school board, but agreed to discuss the possibility of an interim superintendent at the Feb. 27 meeting.
