Overview of the Ideal Candidate Profile for the WCASD Superintendent

  • The ideal candidate for the West Chester Area School District Superintendent role should possess a deep understanding of both pedagogical experience and empathy leadership. With a focus on the eleven themes that emerged from the 2023 WCASD Superintendent Stakeholder Survey and Focus Groups, the candidate should be prepared to address challenges ranging from mental health to academic achievement, from equity to technology.

    This profile serves as an ideal guideline. The School Board understands that no single candidate may possess all these qualities but utilized this feedback as a framework for identifying the most promising leaders.
