Superintendent Search

The Board of Education for Montcalm Area ISD has embarked upon a formal superintendent search as our current superintendent, Ron Simon, is retiring December 2019.  The superintendent search is being facilitated by Michigan Leadership Institute under the direction of Dave Killips, Regional Vice-President.  The timeline for this process is linked here. 

During the search process we have sought input from our employees, our school community, and our collaborative partners.  We offered two opportunities to provide input regarding the qualifications and characteristics that are important in a new superintendent for Montcalm Area ISD.
