Superintendent Search

The School Board of Cleveland Public School District 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.  We thank Mr. Phillips for serving the Cleveland District for 9 years as Principal and 19 as Superintendent.

The School Board met on November 21, 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, here is how you can engage in the search process:


An anonymous public survey is now available for all stakeholders to fill out between December 11, 2023 – January 8, 2024. Click here to complete the Cleveland Superintendent Search Survey. The survey is available in both English and Spanish, and hard copies of the survey in both languages are also available at the district office in Cleveland. Please return any completed surveys to this same location by January 8 so they can be included with the online survey results.

Following the survey deadline of January 8, MSBA will summarize and provide an overview of the responses for presentation to the School Board. Thank you for your interest and participation in the superintendent search process!
