Look for supt.

Nespelem School District is looking for a new superintendent and signed an agreement with a search firm Monday night.

The district will pay $6,900 to Northwest Leadership Associates to look for a new part-time superintendent, but consultant Lloyd Olson said the district needs that position filled at least three days a week, not one. The job is “bigger than that,” he said, suggesting a salary of $60,000 a year.

The job is currently held by Dr. Mary Hall, who also works with the Colville Tribes’ college program. Debra Pankey is the principal. Together they filled the post vacated last summer by John Adkins.

Board Chair Pat Morin has said he will not run for his seat in the elections coming up next fall.
