Superintendent Hiring Input

Dear Springfield Platteview Community, 

The Springfield Platteview School Board is working diligently to prepare for the charge of hiring a permanent superintendent. Hiring a superintendent is one of the most important endeavors a board must face; therefore, we will approach this task with attention to each vital detail necessary to ensure a rewarding and successful search. It is our goal to hire a quality and competent administrator to continue to lead the district forward in the years to come. 

As the board plans for the hire, we value and seek the input of patrons, parents, students, staff, and administrators. The Nebraska Association of School Boards is assisting the board in the superintendent search and has scheduled a visit to our school and community on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at Platteview High School (PHS). The board extends an invitation to the staff and community to participate in this visit to share personal thoughts regarding the district and the superintendent position. Please offer suggestions pertaining to skills, qualities, or characteristics the candidate might possess in order to be successful in his or her role as superintendent and your views about the strengths of the school district and community. The staff/community visit schedule is below for your reference. You will enter PHS through the main doors and be taken to your designated area. Be sure to wear a mask.

Staff/ Community District Needs Assessment Visit Schedule for Feb. 24, 2021

In the event you are unable to attend the visit, please feel free to share your comments to the following questions:

  1. What are the strengths and achievements of the Springfield Platteview school district and communities?
  2. What critical issues will the district face in the next three years?
