CAMP VERDE – No matter who Camp Verde Unified School District’s next superintendent is, the governing board members decided Tuesday that they need to have a plan – and they need to have it as soon as possible.

“I am concerned. I look at the time table; I’d like to be moving as quickly as we can,” CVUSD board member Helen Freeman said as Dr. Karen Gasket spent more than two hours Tuesday saying what Arizona School Boards Association could do for the district as its superintendent search resource.

Dr. Gasket, a leadership consultant for ASBA, reviewed roles and responsibilities of both the association and of the district as Camp Verde schools looks to find a permanent replacement for Dr. Dennis Goodwin, whose contract expires on June 30.

The district – with Dr. Gasket’s help – also compiled a search timeline in the event that Arizona School Boards Association would immediately begin the search.

Cost of service, e-surveys, stakeholder investment and position advertisement were also topics Dr. Gasket discussed with the board.
