    Here are some background snippets from the links:

    Wenatchee, known as "The Apple Capital of the World," is a city of 34,000 people located at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers. The Wenatchee School District serves 7,600 students and 1,100 full- and part-time staff at seven elementary schools, three middle schools, one comprehensive high school, one alternative high school, a K-10 alternative parent partnership school and a technical skills center that serves a consortium of school districts.

    Roughly 50 percent of Wenatchee's students are Latino, 45 percent are white and 5 percent are listed as "other"; 55 percent of the total student population receives free or reduced-cost lunch.
    Board sets new superintendent salary range
    The base salary for Wenatchee’s next superintendent will be between $170,000 and $180,000.
    The Wenatchee School Board last week set a range that matches what other superintendents are making in the region, based on a rough survey of salaries presented by HYA Associates, the firm hired to help recruit.

    Gordon also has been a front-runner for a superintendent's position in school districts in Mercer Island and Redmond in Washington, and in Geary County, Kansas.


    If he's hired in Wenatchee, Gordon could be taking a pay cut. Last November, the Wenatchee board agreed to set an anticipated base salary range between $170,000 and $180,000 for the new superintendent, according to The Wenatchee World and meeting minutes. In District 41, Gordon now receives $229,392 annually.

    For their search, Wenatchee board members hired consultants from Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates. The Schaumburg-based firm has been involved in controversial superintendent hires. A suburban firm paid to find superintendents for public school districts nationwide has mishandled several high-profile searches in recent years, including its failure to learn that a Des Plaines schools chief who resigned amid sexual harassment allegations in November faced similar accusations at his previous job.

    Schaumburg-based HYA Associates -- one of the country's largest educational executive search firms -- brought school boards candidates despite questionable pasts not discovered until ink dried on employment contracts, according to a Daily Herald review of the firm's searches.
