The Central School District continues to search for its next principal for Central High School. The administration contacted an outside search firm, Human Capital Enterprises, to help facilitate the high school principal search and hiring process.

A press release dated June 15 confirms this action based on the direction after the June School Board of directors meeting.

“As we continue to move forward with the principal search, we have engaged Human Capital Enterprise to provide Executive Search consulting services for Central School District,” stated Superintendent Kubista. “Based on the direction after our June Board of Directors meeting, they will help in the recruitment and selection work leading up to the selection process.”

There is still no clarification why the current vice-principal, Roseanna Larson, was passed up for the job. In the June school board meeting, teachers and community members expressed their concerns about the decision of the non hire, including former County Commissioner Mike Ainsworth ­— who called for a vote of no confidence against the superintendent.

“The first step in this process is engaging the central high school staff together with important information from them, which will take place this week. We will also be sharing the next few days and weeks ways for students, and family in the community to engage in these processes,” the Press release continues.

This is the first time the Central School District has hired an outside firm to search for a new administrative position under Superintendent Kubista, according to Emily Mentzer, the district’s communications coordinator. She expects the cost will be $16,800 plus travel expenses as necessary.
