School district to hold community meetings on superintendent search
by Staff Writer
The public engagement phase began in October with the launch of www.nextsuperintendent.com and an online survey. Nearly 9,300 community members completed the survey, which asked questions about the importance of leadership traits, skills and abilities for the next superintendent. Approximately 500 students also provided input through an online high school version of the survey.
“More than 9,000 people participated in the survey, but we want to hear from more community members,” said Board of Education Chairman Eric Davis. “The community’s input is critical in the process as we search for the next superintendent.”
At the end of the community engagement phase, the school board will receive a report of the results during its December meeting.
The community engagement meeting schedule is as follows:
• Monday, Dec. 5: Johnson C. Smith University and Butler High School
• Tuesday, Dec. 6: Myers Park High School and Albemarle Road Middle School
• Thursday, Dec. 8: Vance and North Mecklenburg high schools.
All meetings take place between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. For more information, go online to www.nextsuperintendent.com.
