Superintendent Search

Following Superintendent Jerry Keane’s retirement announcement for the end of the 2019-2020 school year, the Post Falls School District Board of Trustees has begun its search for an experienced educational leader to continue the district’s standard of excellence.

The Board of Trustees is committed to a thorough, transparent hiring process and plans to appoint the next Superintendent by March 2020.  The process started with a community and staff survey to guide the Board in their next steps.  Please see the below links for more detailed information regarding the timeline.
