Superintendent Search

The New Prague Area Schools Board is working in partnership with South Central Service Cooperative (SCSC) to identify the new leader for the school district. SCSC has experienced consultants that work with school boards in this region and hire the right superintendent to lead districts.

New Prague Area Schools is committed to ensuring effective communication throughout the search process. The district will maintain information on this webpage as an information portal on the search process moving forward.

Superintendent Profile

The process starts with creating a superintendent profile with input from various stakeholders including the school board, school staff, parents/guardians and community members. Click on this survey link to provide input into this profile. The profile will be used throughout the process to ensure we hire the candidate that meets our district's needs for a new leader.

In addition, SCSC will conduct in-person focus group meetings at the CEC board room as an opportunity to give input to the profile on Tuesday, January 24th at the following times:

  • NPAS staff at 4:00 pm
  • Community members at 6:00 pm

Monday, January 30th, SCSC will present the superintendent profile to the board at a special board meeting.

  • Profiles will be added here on January 31st.

Monday, February 13th, SCSC will work with the board to determine which applicants to interview for the position. Names of finalists will be made public that evening.

Interviews will take place on Wednesday, February 22nd at the CEC board room.
