Superintendent Search


The Manistique Area Schools Board of Education is beginning the process of hiring a new
superintendent. The Board is soliciting community and staff input on the qualities, experiences, and skills needed in the new superintendent. Residents of the district, all staff and administration are encouraged to participate in the process.

The Board is being assisted in its search by the Michigan Association of School Boards
(MASB), a service organization that supports the work of school boards throughout Michigan. Mary Brayak is facilitating the search on behalf of MASB. Mrs. Brayak will be holding meetings in the district to give the community and staff opportunity for input. Parents and community members are invited to share their perspectives at the following meeting:

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
MHS Community Room

Input may also be shared via an online survey through October 16, 2018, which is available at
this URL:

The survey is being administered by the MASB Executive Search team on behalf of the District and takes about ten minutes to complete. Anonymous individual responses will be combined with those from the face to face meetings with stakeholders to provide important community input to the Manistique Area Schools Board of Education as it seeks to identify the best candidate for the position.

The new superintendent is expected to assume the position on January 1, 2019.
