Join us in the Superintendent Search process!

Posted on: December 21, 2018

The search is underway for a new superintendent, and our school board is asking for your input!  What qualities would you like to see in a new leader? What experience should that person have? Should the board consider special areas of knowledge or skills?

In January, there will be two ways to share your input: in person at focus groups or through an online survey.  The focus groups and online survey will gather the perceptions of staff, students, parents and community members to create a district profile for the search process.  

To share in person:
Student & Parent Focus Group – January 16 – 7:00-8:00 pm
The Student & Parent Focus Group is ideal for current students and parents in the district.

Community Member Focus Group – January 17 – 7:00-8:00 pm
The Community Member Focus Group is ideal for any one who is part of the community.

To share online:
If you are not able to share in person, please consider sharing your thoughts through an online survey. The survey will be open January 14-21.  Staff and parents will receive a link to the survey by e-mail and the link will be posted on the Superintendent Search page.

Our school board and search committee members will use your feedback as they move forward in the selection process. Choosing a new superintendent is one of the most important decisions a school board can make, and we look forward to your participation!


¡Únase a nosotros en el proceso de búsqueda del Superintendente!

¡La búsqueda está en marcha para un nuevo superintendente y nuestra Mesa Directiva está solicitando su opinión! ¿Qué cualidades le gustaría ver en un nuevo líder? ¿Qué experiencia debe tener esa persona? ¿Debería la Mesa Directiva considerar áreas especiales de conocimiento o habilidades?

En enero, habrá dos formas de compartir su opinión: en persona en grupos de conversación o mediante una encuesta en el Internet. Los grupos de conversación y la encuesta en el Internet, reunirán las percepciones del personal, los estudiantes, los padres y los miembros de la comunidad, para crear un perfil del distrito para el proceso de búsqueda.

Para compartir en persona:
Grupo de conversación de padres y estudiantes – 16 de enero – 7: 00-8: 00 pm
El grupo de conversación de padres y estudiantes, es ideal para estudiantes y padres actuales en el distrito.

Grupo de conversación de miembros de la comunidad – 17 de enero – 7: 00-8: 00 pm
El grupo de conversación de miembros de la comunidad, es ideal para cualquiera que forme parte de la comunidad.

Para compartir en el Internet:
Si no puede compartir en persona, considere compartir sus ideas a través de una encuesta en el Internet. La encuesta estará abierta del 14 al 21 de enero. El personal y los padres recibirán un enlace a la encuesta por correo electrónico y el enlace se publicará en la página de Búsqueda del Superintendente.

Los miembros de nuestra Mesa Directiva y del comité de búsqueda, utilizarán sus comentarios a medida que avanzan en el proceso de selección. ¡La elección de un nuevo superintendente es una de las decisiones más importantes que una Mesa Directiva puede tomar, y esperamos su participación!
