Board Superintendent Search

  • For questions about the Superintendent Search, email

    On  September 1 and 2 consultants Dr. Tom Ramming and Dr. Teresa Lawrence met in person with 17 different focus groups and, subsequently, three focus groups via Zoom to solicit input about the traits/characteristics/skills desired in the next Superintendent, as well as perceived challenges and the opportunities facing the next Superintendent.

    Additionally, an online survey was posted to the District’s website soliciting input from stakeholders to help bring diverse perspective to the Board. The online survey is now closed. We appreciate your input! 

    Over the course of approximately four weeks we received 1288 responses to the survey, which was made available in English and Spanish. From among respondents, 71% respondents self-identified as residents with children attending schools in the District.

    On September 29th, Drs. Ramming and Lawrence provided the Board with a summary of the feedback stakeholders contributed through the online survey and focus group sessions. The information we received will continue to help inform the Board in our decision-making process.

    The Board is pleased to share the full report with our community:

    Thank you for all your input! Please continue to check back here for updates.
