School Board Member Doug Ireland Reports on Superintendent Search

It was an extremely active and productive week in the superintendent search. HYA partners, Bill Levinson and Barbara Young conducted interviews and hosted over 40 meetings with various school and community groups exploring key characteristics for the new superintendent as well as gathering input on the perceived qualities and challenges of the district. Thanks to them and all of you who participated.

There is still time to contribute opinions and suggestions to the consulting team as it was decided to extend the survey period. Originally scheduled to close today, the deadline was extended to this Sunday Jan. 25 in recognition of busy post-holiday schedules and the long Martin Luther King holiday and semester break. Access can be found below or on the district website and the Piedmont Portal.  Click link below to participate in the survey.


The next steps will be for the HYA team to collate the input from the surveys and the interviews to create their Leadership profile of our model superintendent. That profile will be delivered at the Feb.11 Board of Ed meeting. From there, they will narrow down the candidates for review by the Board with subsequent interviews of the qualified applicants. The full calendar of events is available on the PUSD website.
Thanks to the community for all for your active participation and we look forward to a successful outcome.
