STCS begins search for superintendent

The Saginaw Township Community Schools Board of Education has begun its search for a new superintendent.

The current superintendent, Douglas Trombley, resigned from his position at the May 21 board meeting after more than six years of working in the district. His last day as superintendent will be July 27. Trombley has accepted a position with the Bay- Arenac Intermediate School District as assistant director of instructional services.

“Over the past six years, Doug has implemented many initiatives and programs aimed at providing a great learning environment for every student every day. The board greatly appreciates Doug’s service to the Saginaw Township community. While we understand his stepping away from being a superintendent in order to spend more time with him family, we are sorry to see him go,” said Board President Mike Colucci.

School Exec Connect is leading the search for the school’s next superintendent, and the board hopes to complete the search by September of this year.

The STCS community and staff are invited to offer their input to the board in their search for a new superintendent. An online survey can be completed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6DFC6BC. The survey is also linked to the STCS website at www.stcs.org.

Focus group sessions will also be held so that citizens may grant their input personally to the consultants of School Exec Connect. These will be held at the Arrowwood Conference Center,

5410 Seidel Road, and are scheduled as follows:

Monday, June 18: noon - community and business leaders; 4 p.m. - teachers and staff; 7 p.m. - parents and community members.

Wednesday, June 20: noon - students; 2 p.m. - teachers and staff; 4 p.m. - parents and community members; 7 p.m. - open forum for all community members.

The survey and the focus groups are an opportunity for the staff and community of STCS to participate in the search for a new superintendent as well as to communicate about the district’s strengths and challenges.
