Hire Hard, Manage Easy…

May 3, 2012

Over the past several months we have been in the process of replacing Saline High School Principal Ben Williams who moved to northern Michigan to become the Superintendent of Central Lake Public Schools.  Since then Executive Director of Human Resources Curt Ellis has been working on soliciting feedback, developing a candidate profile, posting and advertising the position, screening paperwork, interviewing initial candidates, and interviewing finalist candidates last night. It has been an extensive process.

I am reminded of the expression “hire hard, manage easy” which means that the time, effort and energy devoted to screening job candidates pays big dividends down the road.  The position of Saline High School Principal is a key leadership role in our community.  I am excited about the opportunity to finalize the position and begin to move forward with a new principal.

Thank you to all of you – community members, staff, students, and parents – who invested time and energy in providing feedback throughout the process.

    Mr. Ellis has done a great service to our School District for how he has managed this process. We have multiple high quality candidates and multiple members of our community have been able to participate in the process.

    Great Job Mr. Ellis!
