Welcome to Our New Superintendent

It is with great pleasure that we introduce Ryan Cantrell as our new superintendent for the Bruneau-Grand View School District.

The board of trustees felt that the formation of a well-represented interview committee was extremely important in our search for a new superintendent. Our committee consisted of 15 people, including board members, staff members, community members, a facilitator, and a student representative. The superintendent interview committee used a rubric based on the well-defined BGV administrator handbook that outlines the leadership characteristics BGV seeks in its leaders. The interview questions were also aligned to that rubric. We advertised the superintendent position and job description via SchoolSpring.com, via the Idaho School Board Association, and via the district website.

Through this search, BGV received nine applications for the superintendent position. Of the five qualified applicants, one received a job offer elsewhere, and one declined to interview. The interview team then conducted interviews with three remaining excellent candidates. The interview team used the rubric and interview questions during this process and rated candidates based on their qualifications and characteristics BGV seeks in educational leaders.

Because we had three high quality candidates, the interview committee held a deep and thoughtful discussion and found Mr. Ryan Cantrell to be the best candidate for the superintendent position due to his high scores on the rubric, his positive experiences as a current administrator in our district, his exceptional leadership characteristics, and his high commitment to our district. 

We invite you to read an introductory letter from Mr. Cantrell.

The board of directors of the Bruneau-Grand View School District looks forward to working with Mr. Cantrell, and we believe that his leadership qualities are well-suited to serve our district, students, staff, and community.


Rimrock Principal

With the departure of Mr. Dennis Wilson, the Bruneau-Grand View (BGV) hiring committee was tasked with conducting a search for our Rimrock principal during the summer of 2017.

The BGV hiring committee used the now board-approved hiring process which outlines the leadership characteristics BGV seeks in its leaders. The hiring committee used the well-defined BGV administrator handbook to write the job description and guide the interview process for applicants. The Rimrock principal position was advertised via SchoolSpring.com, via the Idaho School Board Association, and with local universities (BSU, BYU Idaho, NNU, U of I, ISU) who recently graduated educational leaders in the spring of 2017.

Through this search, BGV received nine applicants for the Rimrock principal position. The interview team met and interviewed six applicants in order to narrow the choices down to four great candidates. Using the process outlined in the June 2017 board meeting, the BGV hiring committee rated candidates based on their qualifications and characteristics BGV seeks in educational leaders.

Though this decision was difficult, due to the high-quality candidates interviewed, our hiring committee found Mr. Dale Burk to be the best candidate for the Rimrock principal position. Please take a moment to read Interim Superintendent Ryan Cantrell's letter for complete details.
