Superintendent Search

The Board of Education of the Unified School District of De Pere has selected the firm of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA) to assist in the search for the next District Superintendent. Current Superintendent Ben Villarruel announced in December 2020 that he would retire effective July 2022.

The search process will incorporate input from District stakeholders including parents, staff, administrators, students and the community-at-large through a series of focus groups and a community-wide survey. 

Leadership Profile and Survey Summary
Based on feedback from District stakeholders, search consultants HYA Associates presented a Superintendent Leadership Profile to the Board of Education on Aug. 16. The profile will be used as the recruiting process continues. In addition, HYA shared the results of its stakeholder focus groups, interviews and public survey.

Focus Groups and Community Survey Completed

Our Superintendent search consultant HYA conducted several focus groups via Zoom, and provided an online community survey, to help develop a Superintendent Leadership profile. The profile will be used by the School Board to screen candidates during the selection process. Thank you to all who participated. Results will be posted soon.
