Background on the Superintendent Search Process

The Board began their search process in January 2024, engaging with the Bucks IU to serve as its search consultant. On behalf of the Board, the Bucks IU conducted a community survey from January 26th, 2024, through February 4th, 2024, to identify the community’s opinions and priorities. Nearly 140 parents, guardians, taxpayers, students, staff, and other community members responded to the survey, offering feedback on the ideal characteristics and attributes of the future superintendent. The survey also captured what the community believes to be the district’s priorities for the immediate and long-term future. The survey results were shared with the community on the district website and through district communication channels.

As the search consultant, the Bucks IU facilitated a comprehensive search process, actively recruiting qualified candidates and advertising the position in local, regional, state, and national publications. The position was advertised from February 7th, 2024, through March 3rd, 2024. Twenty candidates applied for the position. The Board thoroughly reviewed all twenty applications and selected nine applicants to move forward to a first round of interviews. Eight candidates were from Pennsylvania, and one was from New Jersey. Following these initial interviews, the Board invited five applicants back for a second, increasingly rigorous round of interviews. The Board invited three applicants to return for a third round of interviews, which required the candidates to complete writing exercises and prepare presentations relevant to district priorities, in addition to answering some additional final questions. The Board then made the decision to offer Dr. Andrew J. Doster the position of Superintendent of Schools.
