CALDWELL —  After a rigorous superintendent search that turned up candidates from across the northwest, the Caldwell School Board found the best candidate right next door.

Trustees announced Monday that Homedale Superintendent Tim Rosandick would take the reins in Caldwell starting July 1.

Rosandick is a graduate of Caldwell High School and The College of Idaho, and he previously served as a teacher, principal and assistant superintendent in Caldwell.

For the past seven years, he has worked as superintendent in Homedale.

Caldwell School Board Chairman Chuck Stout praised Rosandick’s success working with the staff and community in Homedale, while also noting his extensive ties with Caldwell.

“Tim brings a unique passion for the school district, which was apparent in all his interviews,” Stout said.

Rosandick rose to the top through a rigorous and competitive process that attracted applications from 27 viable regional candidates, according to Stephanie Mayes, chairwoman of the committee that delivered three top candidates to the school board.

The 12-member search committee represented a broad swath of Caldwell, including parents, educators and community leaders. Their search was guided by a community survey that identified the key characteristics for the new superintendent.

“The committee came to the table representing many points of view, and we grew together in the best interests of the students of Caldwell,” she said.

Rosandick said he will spend the first months in his new job holding conversations with school trustees, administrators and parents.

“It’s about opening communication and building relationships,” he said. “It’s understandable that some feel a level of uncertainty, and I want people to feel reassurance.”

This was Rosandick’s second attempt to become Caldwell’s superintendent. In 2005, when he was assistant superintendent, he applied to replace former Superintendent Rick Miller. The school board selected Lonnie Barber instead.

Rosandick will replace interim Superintendent Jonathan Cline, who took over for former Superintendent Roger Quarles.

Comedy, much like politics, is all about timing. Rush the punchline and you blow the joke — or at least stifle its impact. Effective humor needs time to breathe.

Welcome to the discussion.

    Good for the committee. It's time to get a local person who cares about Caldwell kids. Jonathan Cline has done a great job and Mr. Rosandick will as well. Get some stability and good things will continue to happen. Caldwell has produced some darn good educators in the past only to lose them to other districts. It's good to get one of them back to help our local kids.
