Update on Superintendent Search – Forum Jan. 21

Community Forum on Superintendent Selection 

Wednesday, Jan. 21, 7:00 p.m.

Piedmont High School Student Center

All members of the public and school community are invited to attend and participate.

With the HYA survey (open to the public) having opened Monday, January 12, we are happy to share some preliminary numbers with the community. HYA received roughly 350 completed surveys and another hundred are in progress or unfinished. The cross section of contributors includes parents, staff, teachers, students, and broader community members. As would be expected, parents represent more than 200 of the early responders. We are delighted with the participation and encourage more from all parties.

The survey is a critical step to help the consultants formulate a profile of the key characteristics the community is seeking from its new school leadership. In addition to ranking those skills you think most essential, there is room for personal comment and candidate recommendations.

We will have a busy week around the district with Bill and Barbara from HYA Search Associates in town Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We have arranged meetings across the district to get more direct input from various community constituents. Number one on that list is the community ­wide event at 7:00 at the PHS student center Wednesday night, January 21.  Everyone is invited to participate in this community forum.

Thank you.
