The Indian Hill Board of Education has officially closed the application process in the search for the next Indian Hill School District Superintendent of Schools. The Board will review candidates and select finalists this month, with interviews anticipated at the end of April. During the open and transparent process, the Board of Education has worked with executive search firm McPherson & Jacobson, LLC to collect input from all stakeholders, including holding public community meetings, offering an online survey, and meeting directly with students and staff members during March. All data was compiled for the Board of Education to consider. A new superintendent is expected to be announced in early May.

Background:
The search began following the resignation announcement by Indian Hill Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles effective June 30, 2019. Dr. Miles accepted the position of Superintendent of the Rockwood School District in St. Louis, Missouri. In his new role, Dr. Miles will lead one of the largest school systems in Missouri with approximately 20,000 students. During his seven-year tenure at Indian Hill, the District has shown exceptional performance within the state and nationally in academics, arts, and athletics. Under his leadership, the District conducted a multimillion-dollar renovation of performing arts and athletic facilities, articulated the Strategic Plan for Transformational Excellence (GOLD Standard), achieved an all-time District high ACT composite of 27.0 in 2018, was recognized this year by Niche as the sixth best public school district in the nation, and received Top Workplace recognition from Cincinnati Enquirer (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018).

Additionally, the Board of Education recently initiated an extensive, community-based facility and finance discussion regarding future needs for the school system. The work will continue on these projects and will be among the important work and planning for the next superintendent.
