are saying about
WASB Search Services
Chippewa Falls Area
Hiring a superintendent is one of the most important decisions a school board can make. Budgets are tight, but I believe that this is one area that a board does not want to cut corners. I have no regrets that we hired WASB and firmly believe that they were instrumental in helping us to find the next educational leader of our school district.
Milton School District
The WASB consultants were very knowledgeable and helpful. They took the time to get to know our district and provide what we needed, not just a canned service.
Greenfield School District
The WASB provided a highly professional search service unlike any that I have dealt with in my professional career.
The search service prepared us for the process so that we were able to fill our position with an outstanding candidate in a short amount of time.
The WASB Superintendent Search Services consultants belong to the National Affiliation of Superintendent Searchers (NASS), an experienced network which collaborates and shares placement information.
