    The Fennville Public Schools Board of Education is beginning the task of searching for the district’s new Superintendent of Schools, as Mr. Jim Greydanus has announced his retirement. He has served the district as its superintendent since 2017.

    The selection process, up to and including the appointment of a new Superintendent, is extremely important to ensure the ongoing success of the district. In addition to the Board of Education, staff and community groups can play an important role in the search process. The Board will be assisted by the Michigan Leadership Institute during this process. Andy Ingall, MLI Executive Search Consultant will lead the search process.

    Excellent schools with satisfied students, parents and staff are assisted by high quality educational leadership. Few aspects of the educational system are as important as the quality of leadership provided by the Superintendent. Therefore, the candidates for this position will be expected to possess and demonstrate many qualifications, skills, and abilities, including the ability to help forge strong partnerships with teachers, students, parents, and the community.



    The first opportunity for staff, students, and the community to provide input is via a short survey link below.  The survey will be available March 9  and will close at 4:00 pm on March 23. All input on the survey will be collected anonymously. The Board of Education thanks you in advance for your input.






    On Thursday, March 23, there will be an opportunity for focus groups to share their views regarding the qualifications desired in our new superintendent. Mr. Ingall will lead these meetings. In addition, the community will also contribute to developing the district “Points of Pride” which will describe to candidates the advantages of living and working in the Fennville community. The meeting will be held at Administration Office 5 Memorial Dr., Fennville, MI 49408 in the Board Room.

    If you are unable to attend but would like to share your thoughts, please complete the survey above. The Board of Education thanks you in advance.
