District Human Resources Director Steve Dimond outlined equal opportunity processes to assist the Board in preparations to interview candidates for the superintendency. Dimond suggested posing the same questions for all candidates. He provided the types of questions that cannot be asked under the law, such as those regarding a candidate’s marital status, child care arrangements, religion, age, disabilities and other private matters. He suggested interview questions be job- and behavioral-related, such as asking candidates how they might handle challenging situations.
The search for the new superintendent has been ongoing since last fall. Canyons’ inaugural superintendent Dr. David Doty resigned effective June 30, 2013, to take a job with a private education reform firm. The Board appointed Chief Academic Officer Dr. Ginger Rhode to serve as Interim Superintendent effective July 1, 2013.
