Apply to be on the Minneapolis Superintendent Selection Committee

MINNEAPOLIS – At a special business meeting on March 15, the Minneapolis Board of Education finalized an updated search process for hiring the next Superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS). As part of that process, qualified candidates will be screened by a Superintendent Selection Committee. Today, the application to be on the committee was posted.

The selection committee will be comprised of 11 individuals: six community members — including one student community member — three Board members, the Board’s Student Representative and community engagement facilitator Radious Y. Guess. Board Director Nelson Inz will chair the committee. At its March 22 meeting, the Board will hear how selection committee applications will be reviewed and put forward for Board approval.

Anyone may apply for one of the six community member positions, and all applications must be received by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 1.
