Concluding its search for an interim superintendent to succeed Dr. John Steach whose term ends June 30, 2014, the Canby School District Board of Directors is pleased to announce Samuel I. (“Trip”) Goodall has been selected to be the district's interim Superintendent effective July 1, 2014. Goodall and the Board are working on the terms of a tentative agreement which will be finalized at a public meeting in the near future.
The Board reviewed candidate applications with the assistance of a screening committee, which included administrators, staff, and community selecting several candidates for initial interviews. After initial interviews, the Board narrowed the field and investigated the finalist candidates' backgrounds and references. Following background and reference checks, the Board invited the finalists for a second interview by the Board. Goodall received high praise and strong support at all stages of the search process and background investigation.
