HVS Board of Education selects Dr. Paul Salah as next HVS Superintendent

Dr. Paul Salah has been selected by the Huron Valley Schools Board of Education to lead the school district as its next superintendent. Following the completion of second-round interviews on Monday, September 24, the board voted 6-0 to begin contract discussions with Dr. Salah. He currently serves as Associate Superintendent of Educational Services for Wayne RESA.

"The board feels strongly that Dr. Salah possesses the leadership qualities we are looking for to move Huron Valley Schools to the next level," Board President Jeff Long said. "We are grateful for all the candidates who expressed interest in Huron Valley and feel we had an exceptionally strong pool from which to choose.

"Dr. Salah brings a wealth of experience to our district and will work diligently to learn the unique aspects of our culture and build productive and meaningful relationships with our staff, students and the community."

The board utilized the services of the Michigan Leadership Institute in assisting with the search process. Earlier in the month, board members narrowed their search to six candidates for first-round interviews. They then conducted second interviews with three finalists.

"On behalf of the board of education, I want to thank all the staff and community members who provided input and feedback on our candidates," Long said. "Hiring the superintendent is the most important task the board undertakes. We were committed to conducting an extremely thorough search and, in the end, that paid off because we have identified a strong leader as our next superintendent."
