The Kennett Consolidated School District Superintendent Search Announcement

April 22, 2019
Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community:
I’m writing to inform you that the KCSD School Board of Directors has begun the process of hiring a new superintendent following the announcement of the retirement of Dr. Barry Tomasetti, effective January 27, 2020. We have enlisted the services of the Chester County Intermediate (CCIU) executive search team led by CCIU superintendent Dr. Joseph O’Brien.
Integral to the process will be communication with you, our district stakeholders. The Board invites your input through a series of staff, parent, and community focus groups. These will be conducted in the near future, and more information will be available on our website soon.
The School Board of Directors hopes to have the search process completed by early fall in order to have a superintendent who can assume his or her responsibilities in January 2020.
The members of the Board look forward to working with the entire KCSD community to hire an outstanding educational leader to serve as the district’s next superintendent of schools.
The Board will provide regular updates on the district’s website, email news listservs, and social media.
Joe Meola, President
Kennett Consolidated School Board
