The Beatrice School Board recently accepted the resignation of Dr. Dale Kruse, Superintendent of Schools.  We are grateful for Dr. Kruse’s service to the Beatrice Public Schools and wish him well in his future endeavors. 

The Board of Education is working diligently to prepare for the charge of hiring a quality superintendent to replace Dr. Kruse.  Hiring a superintendent is one of the most important endeavors a board must face; therefore, we will approach this task with fervent 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 community on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.  The board extends an invitation to parent/community members 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.  On the 9th you have two opportunities to attend the parent/community meeting.  Both meetings will take place in the board room at the central administration office.  You can either attend from Noon – 1:00 p.m. or 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

In the event you are unable to attend the parent/community session, please feel free to share your comments to the following questions:

  1. What are the strengths of the Beatrice Public Schools and community?
  2. Identify issues that may impact the district in the next several years?
  3. Identify the personal and professional attributes (skills and/or characteristics)  necessary for this individual to be successful as superintendent of Beatrice Public Schools?
