District 118 to hear from search firms

DANVILLE — Danville District 118 school board members will convene in a special session Wednesday to interview four school administrator search firms and a representative of the Illinois Association of School Boards that could conduct a nationwide search for a new superintendent.

Superintendent Mark Denman said each of the four search firms — BWP and Associates; Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates; PROACT Search; and School Exec Connect — plus the IASB representative will be allotted 20 minutes, which will include 10 minutes to present an overview of their services and another 10 minutes to answer questions from the school board.

The meeting is open to the public.

Board members will decide whether they wants an outside firm to conduct a search for Denman’s replacement or whether to conduct the search on their own.

In July 2012, Denman agreed to extend his contract an extra year so he would continue to serve the district through the 2014-2015 school year. He originally had intended to retire at the end of this school year after 39 years with the school district. However, many key administrators were set to retire during the subsequent two years, so he agreed to stay on a little longer.

Denman started his long career with the district as a seventh-grade teacher at East Park Junior High/Middle School in 1975. He also served as principal for four schools in District 118 — Daniel Elementary, East Park Elementary, North Ridge Middle School and Danville High School.

In 2004, he became associate superintendent for the district and, in 2009, was hired as the district superintendent.

Denman said it is time for the school board to begin the search for his replacement. He has said he believes there are possible superintendent candidates already within the district.

COMING UP The District 118 school board will hold a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, at the Jackson Building, 516 N. Jackson St.
