Superintendent Search Update
The Copper River School District Board of Education (CRSDBOE) is pleased and excited to announce that they have unanimously voted to offer the position of Superintendent to Theresa Laville, our current Assistant Superintendent. Mrs. Laville will start her new role beginning April 1st, pending contract negotiations. The search for our new Superintendent began last August when we recruited an Interim Superintendent and contracted McPhearson and Jacobsen, LLC to facilitate the search process. Over 20 applicants were vetted and eight interviewed, with two candidates brought before the district employees and community at large for final interviews and selection. The CRSDBOE thanks all the candidates for their applications and interest in our District. And we especially recognize our two finalists for coming forward to meet and interact with our teachers, administrators, and community members and enduring a very long day of answering difficult questions.
The CRSDBOE would also like to thank all our staff and community members who participated in this long search process. We received valuable input through the online surveys, zoom meetings and direct phone calls. We could not have chosen the right Superintendent to lead our District in the education of all our children without the full support of this community. So once again, thank you all!
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Laville and welcome her to her new position. She has stepped up to the challenge of leading our District because she holds a special and devout passion for education and has chosen to direct that passion to make the CRSD the best School District in the state.
