The Board of Education is holding a forum on Wednesday, Nov. 16 from 6 – 7 p.m. at the Alan Harvey Theater for families and the community to meet with Leadership Associates, the superintendent search firm hired this fall to manage the search for a permanent superintendent.
Participants will be asked to provide input about the desired personal and professional qualities anticipated in the incoming superintendent, and comments will be used in the development of the candidate profile, recruitment process, and reference checking, according to PUSD. The consultants will also compile a summary of all comments received during these sessions and share the report with the Board and with the new superintendent.
According to PUSD, during the session consultants will share an overview of the process, and then ask two primary questions:
- What are the desirable qualities, characteristics, background and professional and personal experiences for the next superintendent?
- What do you see as the strengths of the district and the major challenges facing the district in years ahead?
There is no need to RSVP. If unable to attend, you will still have an opportunity to provide your feedback and responses to these same questions via an anonymous online survey open from November 14 – 21.
