(Gilbert Arizona) – Gilbert Public Schools has begun the process of searching for a new superintendent, after current Superintendent Christina Kishimoto announced her resignation on May 30.

During a special meeting Tuesday, Gilbert’s board considered bids from three different search firms.

The board voted to select the Arizona School Boards Association to assist with the search process for a new superintendent.

At the special meeting, the school board unanimously agreed to partner with ASBA, an Arizona-based firm, after presentations by this non-profit organization and two other search agencies.

During his presentation, Steve Highlen, ASBA’s Executive Search and Senior Policy Consultant, advocated for a new superintendent search process with input from stakeholders and community involvement.

Dr. Kishimoto’s resignation will be effective June 30.
