Superintendent Search

Dear District Staff and Community Members:

The Rochester Community Unit School District #3A Board of Education has begun the search process for a new superintendent.  As you may be aware, Dr. Thomas Bertrand, Superintendent, will be retiring at the end of the 2017-2018 school year.  We have selected SCHOOL EXEC CONNECT, an educational search firm, to assist us in this process.

We are interested in receiving your input about the new superintendent.  We would appreciate it if you would take about five minutes to fill out this online survey.

Findings from this survey, open forums, and several focus group conversations will be used to develop a New Superintendent Profile that will be reported to the Board on June 19, 2017.

As we move forward, our most important consideration is securing the strongest candidate pool and ultimately the best person to lead our District.  To that end, the Board of Education has decided to conduct a confidential search and only the final candidate's name will be announced publicly.

The Board of Education looks forward to your support and assistance with this very important undertaking.  Please feel free to contact the lead consultant assisting us if you have any questions or comments regarding the search:  Ms. Diane Robertson,

We look forward to your input as we search for a new superintendent to continue our "Tradition of Excellence."


Mr. Randy Hawkins
President, Board of Education
Rochester Community Unit School District #3A
