At its meeting on May 21, 2020, the Columbia Borough Board of School Directors voted 7 to 2 to notify the superintendent of its intention to consider another or other candidates for the office of Superintendent for the term beginning January 1, 2021. While it is regrettable that this action fell in the midst of a pandemic, the Board was constrained by timelines set forth in PA School Code and the Superintendent’s contract. To begin that search process, at its meeting scheduled for June 18, 2020, the Columbia Borough Board of School Directors will consider proposals from organizations or firms interested in conducting the superintendent search.
At its public meeting on June 18, 2020, the Board and public heard presentations from three firms or organizations interested in conducting the superintendent search for Columbia Borough School District. The Board approved Lancaster Lebanon IU 13 to coordinate the search. The Board is currently working through the two-round interview process.
