After completing an extensive multi-state search, the Brookings-Harbor Board of Directors is pleased to announce that three finalists have been selected from a field of 17 applicants for further consideration to be the next Superintendent of Brookings-Harbor School District. The board and screening committee thoroughly reviewed the applications and the board has conducted initial interviews with several candidates. While two of the three finalists declined to continue, the board has invited Mr. David Marshall, to continue in the selection process.
Mr. David Marshall is currently the assistant superintendent/human resources director at Hermiston School District in Hermiston, Oregon. He has 12 years of administrative experience in education including seven years as an assistant superintendent and student services director in the Milton-Freewater school system. His education specialist’s degree was earned from Lewis and Clark College.
The school board will begin reference checks and site visit for the finalist over the next several days. After the background checks are completed, the school board will invite the finalist for a "day in the district” on Tuesday, February 18th, 2020. At that time school staff and members of the community will have an opportunity to meet the candidate and provide feedback to the school board. The staff/community forum will start at 6:00 pm in the Azalea Middle School Library.
The Board would like to remind the staff and community that they are committed to finding the best candidate and will use every resource possible to ensure the continued success of each child in the Brookings-Harbor School District. If the lone finalist is not the right fit for this superintendent vacancy, the board will immediately reopen the position to seek additional candidates.
