Have an open administrative position? We can help your district.

Among the most important decisions a school board will make is selecting your district’s administrative leaders.


Whether Superintendent, Business Manager, Principal or other administrative positions, ASBSD and Dakota Education Consulting’s search services is the best option for your school.


Since 2019, ASBSD and DEC have combined their knowledge, networks and experience to conduct 50 administrator searches for school boards, which includes completing more than 50 percent of the searches for open public school superintendent positions during that time.


Led by Tom Oster, who’s operated DEC since 2011, in addition to his decades of service in education as Secretary of Education and a Superintendent, among other roles, ASBSD and DEC’s search service assists your school board in each step of the search process – from posting to interviews to hiring and negotiating a contract.

“Together, we’ll work through the process of bringing aboard a new administrator in your school,” Oster said. “We know the importance of these decisions and we understand how to recruit candidates that will be a good fit for your district.


“We will provide you with all the resources you could want and need.”


And, Administrators agree, as our service is the only one in the state endorsed by the School Administrators of South Dakota.


“Our search service is here to find your district the best fit for your administrator position,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany.


“With years of experience in search services, and in education, Tom will exceed your board’s expectations in the search process.”
