2021-2022 Superintendent Search
The Clear Creek Amana School Board has contracted with Ray and Associates, an Executive Leadership search firm, to assist with the search for the next superintendent of Clear Creek Amana Community Schools. The Board wants you to be informed of the process that will be followed and the opportunities stakeholders will have to offer input to assist in making the best selection possible.
In June 2021, the CCA School Board postponed the Superintendent search process due to the timing of the year for applicants. The Board hired an Interim Superintendent and elected to resume the search in the Fall of 2021. The search firm, Ray and Associates, is collecting feedback on what qualities are wanted or not wanted for the next CCA Superintendent. Input will be collected from members of the community, employees and students.
