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. See the search process timeline, and details below.

Save the Date: Focus Groups, Community Survey

Our Superintendent search consultant HYA will be conducting focus groups via Zoom, and offering an online, community-wide survey to help develop a Superintendent Leadership profile. The profile will be used by the School Board to screen candidates during the selection process.
