Superintendent Search

Superintendent Search Information

The School Board of Zumbrota-Mazeppa Public Schools is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The School Board contracted with the Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) to guide and provide assistance throughout the process.   

The School Board met on February 13, 2023, to plan the search. An important part of the search process is gathering stakeholder input for the Board to consider as it moves forward in selecting the new superintendent, and here are two ways you can engage in the search process:  


An anonymous public survey is now available for all stakeholders to fill out between February 15 – March 5, 2023.  Click here to complete the Zumbrota-Mazeppa Public Schools Superintendent Search Survey. The survey is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese, and hard copies of the survey in both English and Spanish are also available at the district office in Zumbrota. Please return any completed surveys to the same location by March 5 so they can be included with the online survey results.  

Following the survey deadline of March 5, MSBA will summarize and provide an overview of the responses for presentation to the School Board. 


To ensure all district stakeholders have access to accurate information regarding search processes and expectations, MSBA will host a virtual Q & A with MSBA at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, February 21. Click here to access the Zoom link to attend the virtual session. All stakeholders are invited to attend the live session; however, to accommodate busy schedules as well as ensure access to search information, the session will also be recorded and made available on the district website for the remainder of the search. 

Questions about the search process can be submitted anonymously in advance by clicking here: Submit Search Questions Here. Deadline for submittal of advance questions is February 21 @ 10 am. Questions may also be submitted during the session using the chat box. 

We hope you can join MSBA for this overview of the upcoming search process. If you are unable to join us live, please visit the district website to watch the recording at a later date. Contact Amy Jordan, MSBA Executive Search Specialist, at 507-479-9984 with any questions. Thank you for your interest and participation in the superintendent search process!
