New School Superintendent

I am aware this doesn't fall within my paygrade, but why would we want to spend $15,000+ to some entity to find a new School Superintendent, with whom the School Board could then make a sweet contract, extend same, only to then terminate it, "for convenience"? I don't mean to imply that there should not be a "for convenience" option for them, but if they were tasked with the search, negotiation, and RESPONSIBILITY of finding the replacement, perhaps they would explore all reasonable alternatives before they play the "for convenience" card. Wow! Responsibility sure has a lot of syllables.
