Superintendent Search Overview (2010–11)

The Eugene School District began searching for a new superintendent in the fall of 2010, after Superintendent George Russell announced that 2010–11 would be his thirteenth and final year at the helm of Eugene School District 4J.

To begin the process of finding a new superintendent, the Eugene School Board appointed a citizen search committee and selected Ray & Associates to provide executive search consultant services.

The nationwide executive search garnered an excellent pool of strong candidates. The school board in February narrowed the field to three finalist candidates.

A community forum was held on Tuesday, March 8, to provide an opportunity for each finalist candidate to speak to and answer questions from interested community members.

The board on March 16 selected Dr. Sheldon Berman as the next superintendent of Eugene School District 4J. Dr. Berman will begin work on July 1, 2011.
