Superintendent Search

Superintendent Search Overview

The Hamilton Community Schools Board of Education is beginning the task of searching for the district’s new Superintendent of Schools, as Mr. David Tebo has announced his resignation at the end of this school year. He has served the district admirably for 12 years in this position. 

The selection process, up to and including the appointment of a new Superintendent, is extremely important to ensure the ongoing success of the district. In addition to the Board of Education, staff and community groups can play a very important role in the search process. The Board will be assisted by the Michigan Leadership Institute during his process. Dave Killips and Andrew Ingall will lead the search process.

Excellent schools with satisfied students, parents and staff are assisted by high quality educational leadership. Few aspects of the educational system are as important as the quality of leadership provided by the Superintendent. Therefore, the candidates for this position will be expected to possess and demonstrate many qualifications, skills, and abilities, including the ability to help forge strong partnerships with teachers, students, parents, and community.

The first opportunity for staff, students, and community to provide input is via a short survey on our website at Please click on the link under Superintendent Search - Community Input Survey to participate in giving feedback. The survey will be available at 8:00 am on March 14 and will close at 4:00 pm on March 20.  All input on the survey will be collected anonymously. The Board of Education thanks you in advance for the input.
