Birmingham Public Schools Superintendent Search Nearing Completion
Former Birmingham Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Daniel Nerad retired from the district last spring and Interim Superintendent John Silveri is serving until a permanent replacement is found. The Board has been working with a search firm to help with hiring a new Superintendent for the district, Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates. They held a series of community forums to help create candidate profile for their search. The Board anticipates selecting a candidate following interviews in late November and early December.
“We are very grateful for the engagement we’ve received from the community throughout this process thus far,” said Kim Whitman, BPS Board President. “Selecting a superintendent is a responsibility that we as a Board do not take lightly. The input we’ve gathered from the community will help us select candidates that represent the specific needs of the Birmingham Public Schools. We expect to find a dynamic leader that will help us move the district forward.”
