Executive Director Search Update

We are excited to inform you that Stargate has received over 40 applications from candidates interested in becoming the Stargate Executive Director.  On April 2, 2019, Stargate will host a community Town Hall for the three finalists in the Executive Director search. The Ad Hoc Committee has been formed and will meet on March 6 and 7, 2019 to review the resumes from all of the qualified applicants. The committee will narrow down the qualified applicants and interview six candidates on March 13 and 14, 2019. The interview questions will cover all of the topics included in the community survey, giving an emphasis to the two qualifications determined most important, leadership skills and experience in gifted education.  From those six candidates, the committee will recommend three finalists to the Board.
