Job Description

Windham Southeast Supervisory Union (WSESU) is seeking a dynamic, visionary educational leader to become our next Superintendent of Schools. We are a newly merged district with a diverse student body that includes eleven schools serving 2500 students in PreK-12, including Early Education Services (Head Start program), and the Windham Regional Career Center.

Nestled in the foothills of the Green Mountains, the communities of southeastern Windham County are made up of people from across the country and world, as well as families who have been here for generations, and our student population reflects these wide-ranging demographics. The next Superintendent of WSESU will embrace our diversity and understand rural school needs.

We are searching for someone who can bring innovative ideas for curriculum, culture, and community to life by engaging and inspiring others. As a newly merged district, we are looking for a leader who can balance unification with supporting each school to retain its own unique culture. They will be aware of the challenges faced by marginalized communities, including economically-disadvantaged students, individuals with disabilities, students of color, and LGBTQ students.

Our next Superintendent is someone well-versed in current research as to instructional best practices. They will be capable of communicating those practices vibrantly to administrators, educators, parents, and the broader community. They will champion the excellent work and quality services provided by WSESU so that everyone who is touched by education in our district knows what is happening in our school system.

A highly qualified candidate will have student achievement and well-being as a central focus, be able to successfully collaborate with all stakeholders, and further existing efforts to create wholly inclusive school communities. They will have previous experience as an educator and educational leader, preferably as a principal and also as a superintendent. Additionally, they will have strong leadership skills, including (but not limited to) evaluation and reporting, strategic planning, implementation and oversight, complex problem-solving, and management of school personnel, budgets and resources.

Salary and benefits commensurate with other Vermont school districts of similar size.
