Superintendent Search Archive

 Dear District Staff and Community Members:

The Moline-Coal Valley SD #40 Board of Education has begun the search process for a new superintendent.  As you may be aware, Mr. Lanty McGuire, Superintendent, will be retiring at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. We have selected SCHOOL EXEC CONNECT, an educational search firm, to assist us in this process. 

We are interested in receiving your input about the new superintendent.  We would appreciate it if you would take about five minutes to fill out an online survey that will be available from September 4-28, 2018. (The survey link is located at the bottom of this page). 

In addition to the survey, if you would like to provide input on the district’s strengths, the district’s challenges, and the characteristics the next superintendent should possess, the SCHOOL EXEC CONNECT consultants invite you to attend one of the open forums listed below.  

*Moline-Coal Valley Staff Members

            Wilson Middle School Auditorium, September 24th, 3:45 p.m.

*Moline-Coal Valley Community Members

            Wilson Middle School Auditorium, September 24th, 5:00 p.m.           

Findings from the survey, the open forums, and several focus group conversations will be used to develop a New Superintendent Profile that will be reported to the Board on October 8, 2018. 

 As we move forward, our most important consideration is securing the strongest candidate pool and ultimately the best person to lead our District. To that end, the Board of Education has decided to conduct a confidential search and only the three finalist candidates’ names will be announced publicly.

The Board of Education looks forward to your support and assistance with this very important undertaking.  Please feel free to contact the lead consultant assisting us if you have any questions or comments regarding the search:  Dr. Kevin O’Mara [email protected] .

We look forward to your input as we search for a new superintendent to lead Moline-Coal Valley SD #40.


Mrs. Kate Schaefer
President, Board of Education
