SuperintendentSearch AdCharles County Board of Education is beginning its search for a new Superintendent of Schools to replace Superintendent Dr. Kimberly Hill, who has announced she is retiring June 30, 2021.

Search consultants from the Maryland Association of Boards of Education (MABE) recently met with Board members to brief them on the search process and to begin developing a timeline. William Middleton, lead MABE search consultant, said the search is a “patience-building process that will not happen overnight.”

Middleton said MABE conducts a professional, transparent, open and fair process for everyone involved. He also emphasized that each Board member must agree to abide by several protocols to maintain the confidentiality of applicants and their information and until the Board identifies them as a finalist for the position.

MABE solicited community input about Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) through a survey.  The purpose of the survey was to determine what characteristics the public believes should guide the Board’s search for a new superintendent and what challenges the public believes the new superintendent will face.

The Board will advertise nationally for the position beginning in February and MABE will start screening applications in March. For the application and the other required documents, visit the MABE website:  First round interviews will be held virtually in late March. The Board plans to make a final decision and an announcement by the end of May.
