Search for New Superintendent
The Fairbanks North Star Borough Board of Education has selected the Alaska
Association of School Boards (AASB) to conduct a search for the new
superintendent of schools. Dr. Bruce Johnson is serving as the search consultant
and has worked closely with the board to identify a process best suited for the
Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.
The school board will continue to solicit public input on the qualifications most
desired for the school district’s next superintendent.
“The responsibility to hire a new superintendent should not be underestimated–the
process, who the board selects, and how we move forward will have a lasting
effect on our district for years to come,” said school board president Leslie
The board invites the public to participate in the process by giving input and
sharing desired qualifications. Visit the district’s Web site for instructions on how
