ASBSD and DEC partnering on supe search service

ASBSD and Dakota Education Consulting are teaming up to offer school boards the best option in superintendent search services.


Since 2011, Tom Oster has operated DEC and successfully conducted many superintendent searches for districts all across South Dakota while ASBSD has provided a similar service to many school boards over the years.


The two entities are now combining their knowledge, networks and experience for school boards to tap into when making one of their most important decisions.


“Selecting a new superintendent is obviously among the biggest decisions a school board will make and we want to help streamline the entire process for board members,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany.


“That’s why we’re ecstatic about partnering with Tom and DEC. His experience in education and in completing superintendent searches is immense and we’re thrilled to combine our resources.”


Oster shares Pogany’s enthusiasm about the partnership.


“I’m looking forward to combining our search services to ensure school boards secure the best candidate for the superintendent position,” Oster said. “Together we’ll provide quality, expert and extensive assistance to school districts in meeting their administrative search needs.”


School boards interested in receiving a superintendent search proposal or retaining ASBSD and DEC’s services, should contact Oster by phone at 605-202-0172 or by email at
