OSKALOOSA — Board of Education members discussed Tuesday the next steps in the search for a superintendent and awarded the recruiting contract to GR Recruiting out of Council Bluffs at the cost of $8,500 plus applicable transportation and advertising costs.

GR Recruiting has over 50 associates throughout the nation and has experience in Oskaloosa, having conducted the 2018 superintendent search which ended in the hiring of Paula Wright.

Wright announced her retirement earlier this month. It will be effective June 30, 2022.

A team of six recruitment associates with experience in Iowa superintendent recruiting will conduct the search.

As part of the agreement, GR Recruiting will conduct a new superintendent search at no cost to the district if the board is dissatisfied with the new hire within two years of initial employment.
