Site Administrator Selection – Community Input

Dear K-Beach School Community, Mr. Crabtree has been hired as our next Director of Human Resources.   As a result, this has created a principal vacancy for next school year.  Due to the timing of this happening so late in the school this year creates a situation causing the District to post the K-Beach Principal position as an interim position for the 2019-2020 school year.

After your new interim principal is hired and has had a few months to serve as principal, I will visit with your staff and Site Based Council again in December of 2019 to gather input on how the community would like to proceed with filling the administrator position permanently for the 2020-2021 school year.  This is similar to what we are doing with other late administrative postings this year at Kenai Central High School and Chapman Elementary.

Public interviews for this are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday May 28th at 3 PM in the K-Beach Library.  All are invited to attend.

To help us prepare for this job posting and the interviews, we would like your feedback on the characteristic you would like to see in your next principal.  Please take the time to fill out the enclosed input form and email it back to superintendent@kpbsd.org or fax to 907-262-9132.

It may also be hand delivered to Kim Smith in the K-Beach office. Due to the timing of this vacancy please return your input forms ASAP so that we can post this job vacancy. Thank you!

Wishing you success and positive impact,
