Aspen School District (ASD) is seeking a superintendent committed to academic excellence, educating the whole child, and continuous personal and professional growth and development for all stakeholders. The new superintendent will lead the development and implementation of a shared aspirational vision and strategic plan for the ASD that takes into account the future of education and maximizes the full potential of our unique schools and community. The new superintendent should be able to demonstrate evidence of being an excellent communicator, authentic collaborator, a regular and visible presence, and a role model for thoughtful self-evaluation and growth. An individual who thrives in the outdoors and immerses oneself in, and contributes to, the culture of the greater community will be a strong candidate. The compensation package will be highly competitive and includes housing.
The Aspen district educates 1700 students (PK-12) in four schools sharing a campus, the charter Aspen Community School (K-8), and in an extraordinary outdoor environment through Experiential Education and an array of outdoor education programs and opportunities. Candidates from public and independent school leadership backgrounds are invited to apply.
Applications must include the following:
• A cover letter that clearly states why the candidate is seeking the position.

• A written response to these three prompts:
a) What contributions do you envision making that will increase the opportunities for students and staff that you see in our unique community.
b) Describe your recent and relevant experience in vision and change oriented strategic planning.
c) As you understand our mission, please describe your recent and relevant experiences and provide evidence of what you have done to address these principles successfully in your past roles
