Search Task Force

Search Task Force
The Minneapolis Board of Education (School Board) has created a Superintendent Search Task Force (Task Force), charged with interviewing up to seven qualified applicants for the superintendent of schools position and recommending two to three finalist candidates for interview by the School Board. 
There will be 17 members on the Task Force, including three school board members. The Task Force will be chaired by School Board Director Lori Norvell and be supported by the contracted executive search firm, BWP & Associates. Task Force members are considered volunteers and expected to follow all applicable MPS policies and regulations. Members are appointed in accordance with Board Resolution 2023-0058.
Time Commitment
Task Force members must attend all training, interviews, and meetings in their entirety. Food will be provided for meetings lasting four hours or more, and child care and interpretation, as needed, will be available upon request. Substitutes will be provided for MPS teachers who need them. 
Confidentiality and Public Data Notice
Names and information about applicants are confidential and Task Force members will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement to participate. At no time during or after the work of the Task Force may members discuss anything about applicants with anyone except other members of the Task Force. Any violation of the confidentiality agreement will result in immediate removal from the Task Force and MPS employees appointed to the Task Force may be subject to disciplinary action, including termination from their MPS employment. The confidentiality agreement can be viewed here.
Task Force member names and other basic information provided to the appointing authority during the appointment process may be considered public data in accordance with Minnesota Statutes Section 13.601.
