The Tempe Union High School District has selected five semi-finalists as potential replacements for outgoing Superintendent Shirley Miles, whose contract ends June 30. Two of the semi-finalists are local candidates, including current district associate superintendent Steve Adolph. An intradistrict staff effort to see Adolph promoted to the superintendent spot has been under way since February, with petitions circulating among school administrators encouraging the district to promote him. The other candidates, with information gleaned from their resumes, are: • Dr. Doug Wilson was superintendent of the Agua Fria Union High School District in Arizona from 2002 to 2006 and an administrator of various high schools in Arizona and Kansas from 1990 to 2002. From July 2006 to the present, Wilson was a partner in Texas-based superintendent search firm BWP & Associates. • Dr. William Zwick has been the present superintendent of Marion County Schools in Marion, Ohio, since 2003, and has acted as superintendent to four other Ohio school districts between 1985 and 2003. • Dr. Linda Bigos is a resident of Hershey, Pa., has been the superintendent of the East Pennsboro Area School District in Enola, Pa., since 1999. Prior to that, Bigos was an associate superintendent to two other districts between 1991 and 1999, and was a principal to two different elementary schools from 1985 to 1991. • Dr. Thomas Budde has been the superintendent for the Central Union High School District in El Centro, Calif., for the last two years. • Adolph has spent 27 years in the Tempe Union district, with the last six spent in the associate superintendent position. Previously, he was principal at Tempe Marcos de Niza High School, and prior to that he was a teacher and then an assistant principal at Tempe Corona del Sol High School. He graduated from Marcos de Niza. The announcement of the five semi-finalists is the latest step in more than a month of searching by Illinois-based headhunting firm Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates. The firm performed the nationwide superintendent search for Tempe Union for an estimated $25,000 to $35,000. The salary range expected to be offered, depending on experience, is between $125,000 and $160,000 per year. Miles, currently makes $144,000 per year. The semi-finalist pool will be whittled down to two or three penultimate candidates this weekend, with public forums to meet the finalists beginning next week (see adjacent article). The district's governing board expects to announce Tempe Union's new superintendent by May 30. --Jason Ludwig can be reached at (480) 898-7916 or jludwig@aztrib.com.
