Bellevue School District invites public to superintendent search forums

The Bellevue School Board is in the process of searching for the district’s next superintendent, and is inviting members of the public to provide feedback at upcoming community meetings.

Current Superintendent Tim Mills announced in August that he will retire at the end of the current school year.

The district will be holding four community forums next week for people to provide feedback on desired characteristics for the next superintendent. The results of the forums and an online survey will be used to help guide the search for a superintendent.

The forums will be led by Ray & Associates, a national executive leadership search firm the Board has contracted with to conduct the search. If you are not able to attend a forum, you can still provide your input by filling out an online survey at

The forums will be held at:

Nov. 29 at Newport High School, 4333 Factoria Blvd. SE.

  • · Morning Community Forum, 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., Lecture Hall
  • · Evening Community Forum, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Performing Arts Center

Nov. 30 at Wilburton Instructional Service Center (WISC), 12241 Main St.

  • · Morning Community Forum, 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., Rainier Room
  • · Evening Community Forum, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Rainier Room
