The yearlong search involved members of the school board, district educators and community members.

The school board of seven and a screening committee of 12 educators, administrators and community members identified semi-finalists out of 18 applications from around the country.

After a screening and interview process four finalists were selected and invited to visit the district on Thursday, March 14. After a tour of the district, candidates were interviewed again by the board.

"It was great to meet many staff, students, and community members during the interview

process, which solidified my anticipation to join the Corbett team," Fialkiewicz said. "I look forward to working with all stakeholders to ensure we provide the best learning environment for each student."

Since 2017 Fialkiewicz has been the principal of Lied STEM Academy Middle School in the

Clark County School District, in Nevada. Prior to that, he was a middle school assistant principal

for six years, and a high school dean of students for three years all within the Clark County

School District, in Nevada. Fialkiewicz earned his doctorate in mathematics education and his administrative credentials from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

"I am excited to hit the ground running on July 1, 2022, cultivating the Corbett culture of everyone doing what is best for our students to succeed both in and out of the classroom," Fialkiewicz said.

Dan Wold is currently leading the Corbett School District as interim superintendent. For more information, contact Michelle Vo, Corbett School Board chair.
