The Ken-Ton School Board is asking for community input into the search for the district's next superintendent. Board President Bob Dana sent out an email this morning asking the public to complete a survey online. The Board meets at 6:30 p.m. tonight in the community room of the Philip Sheridan building, 3200 Elmwood Ave.
Here's Dana's email:
I believe everyone in the District is aware that we have officially begun our search for a new superintendent. We are moving quickly as it takes a great deal of time and our goal is to have a new superintendent in place by August 1st. On Tuesday, February 4th the Board of Education hired the Warner Center for Educational Reform out of the University of Rochester to assist us in this endeavor. One of the aspects that impressed us most about this firm is their strong commitment to involving District employees and the entire community in the process. Every effort is being made to include input from all stakeholder groups, not only to take part in the actual interviews, but right from the beginning as we identify the qualities desired most in our next superintendent.
We have officially posted the position and launched a page on our website to provide information, the application, and a survey to solicit your input. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey as your opinion is important to us. Just simply click on the link below to join us as we begin our search for Ken-Ton's next superintendent. We thank you in advance for your participation in this extremely important process. Thanks and continue having a GREAT day! Bob
