Upper Darby School District Superintendent Search

  • Update-January 2019

    The Upper Darby School District Superintendent Search is progressing according to the projected timeline. The DCIU Search Consultants are pleased to provide the following update on the Search.

    From November 2018 until January 2019, the Search Consultants have been actively recruiting qualified candidates for the position.

    At the close of the application, there were thirty-four (34) formal applications for the Superintendent of Schools vacancy. The break-down of applicants is as follows:

    • We received 23 applications from sitting superintendents or assistant superintendents (13 from PA and 10 Out of State).
    • We received 11 applications from candidates who have their PA letter of eligibility but are not currently in a superintendent or assistant superintendent role.

    The Board, along with Search Consultants, will screen the candidate pool, identify candidates based on the Leadership Profile, and conduct interviews.

    Interviews are slated to begin in February and appointment of your new Superintendent is expected in the spring.
