An initial timeline has been set by the East Grand Forks Public School Board in its search for a new superintendent.

The board hopes to post the advertisement early next week and keep it open until the end of January, Chairman Tony Palmiscno said.

Superintendent David Pace resigned in November, saying he was ready to "look elsewhere" after nine years in the district. His resignation is effective June 30.

The board will meet sometime in mid-January to develop focus groups that will help create a profile of what qualities the district wants in its new superintendent, Palmiscno said. One group will include school district staff, and another will include residents of the district.

By mid-February, the board's superintendent search team, PEER Solutions of Sauk Rapids, Minn., and others hope to review applications and select final candidates to interview, according to the timeline. Officials plan to choose a successful candidate by mid-March.

The board will discuss the search for a superintendent at the next regular meeting Jan. 11.

Over the last two months, the board has held meetings to choose a superintendent search team and speak to a consultant from the Minnesota School Boards Association. Consultant Sandy Gundlach suggested they consider five or six finalists.
