Consultants begin work to find H-F’s next superintendent

The search for District 233’s next superintendent has officially begun.

Representatives of Alma Advisory Group of Chicago spent May 20 and 21 at Homewood-Flossmoor High School meeting with students, staff, administrators and community representatives to learn what traits and experiences they’d like the next superintendent to bring to the job.

Superintendent Scott Wakeley announced his retirement after 34 years in education. He will serve at H-F through June 2025.

Community members at the May 20 meeting were asked to list what they love most about H-F; what two or three areas need improvement; the skills or experiences they want in the next superintendent; and what should a potential superintendent candidate know or understand about H-F.

Sylvia Flowers, managing director at Alma, said the search will have a national scope. She outlined the steps Alma will be taking to find the right candidate for H-F. 

According to the timeline presented at the meeting, a job profile will be created in June, candidates will be identified and screened in July and August, and the District 233 school board will conduct interviews in fall. A round of interviews for the finalists is scheduled for November and December.  Flowers said the next superintendent should be identified before the holidays.
