The Northwest Regional Education Service District Board of Directors is working with the Oregon School Boards Association on the search and selection of a new superintendent for the district.

Community involvement from the public will be an important part of the process as the ESD Board and OSBA receive input from parents and other patrons regarding criteria and qualifications for the new superintendent. The public is invited to attend community meetings from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday at the Clatsop Service Center, 3194 Marine Drive, or 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Tillamook Service Center, 2410 Fifth St. in Tillamook.

Following input from the community and local school district superintendents, OSBA consultants will advertise the position and receive applications through mid-February. A screening committee to review applications will include a school district superintendent from Clatsop, Columbia, Tillamook and Washington counties. The NWRESD Board anticipates announcing the new superintendent in early April with a starting date of July 1, 2004. Melvin G. (Bud) Moore is serving as interim superintendent for the Northwest Regional ESD through June 30, 2004. He is expected to resume his former position as deputy superintendent for the 2004-05 school year.

As one of the state's largest ESDs, the Northwest Regional Education Service District provides special education, technology and instructional services to 20 school districts in Columbia, Clatsop, Tillamook and Washington counties. To learn more, visit (
