Perrin begins search for new superintendent

PERRIN — School board members here began the arduous process of hiring a new Superintendent to replace John Kuhn, who resigned to become the superintendent at Mineral Wells ISD.

After a discussion with Region 9 officials, the board voted unanimously during Tuesday evening’s board meeting to use Region 9 as its superintendent search firm. Kuhn told the board he is expected to be offered a contract Monday after a 21-day waiting period as the MWISD’s lone finalist. Kuhn would then officially turn in his resignation and get the ball rolling in hiring a replacement in Perrin. 

A special board meeting has been called in Perrin Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. to begin the process.

Darren Francis, who works with Region 9 schools in helping to find a superintendent, says the board is embarking on the most critical thing it does as a board.

“It’s very important to find someone you trust and can work with,” Francis said.

Francis says he never recommends districts going out and doing the search for a new super themselves. He told the board it’s a good idea to have the family and the applicant visit the area before an interview has even been conducted to make sure the area is a good fit for everyone involved.
