The Carmel Clay Schools board of trustees announced Feb. 12 that Michael Kerschner has been tasked with leading the search for a new superintendent.
Kerschner, who was elected to the school board in 2014, said that the search process is under way. The board held a closed-door meeting before its Feb. 12 work session regarding the superintendent search, and he said many more of these executive sessions will be scheduled as the process continues.
The school board has asked the Indiana School Boards Association to assist with the superintendent search.
“They will be helping us coordinate our application process. They will be gathering applications and organizing them for us,” Kerschner said. “We will be gathering community input on qualifications of a superintendent that members of our community think is important.”
The district is likely to gather community feedback through an online program such as Thoughtexchange, Kerschner said.
The district has been without an acting superintendent since October 2017 when Nicholas Wahl was put on administrative leave. CCS announced his resignation Jan. 12 but has remained tight-lipped on the circumstances behind it. Wahl will receive pay through June 30.
