The School Board has restarted the search for a new director of schools. As the first step, a group of community leaders will make recommendations to the School Board that can result in the strongest director of schools hire possible.

Thank you to everyone who provided valuable feedback during the first search. We want to build on that and be sure we have the voices of our parents and teachers represented – your opinions are critical to this process. Please take a moment to complete the survey below. Your feedback will help shape the search for the next leader of our schools.

All responses are confidential.
