The community forum will allow residents to discuss the search for a new district superintendent. This will be the second public meeting the board holds on the subject. You can read about the first .
From the Board of Education:
At this meeting, you will have an opportunity to meet one or more of the search consultants from School Leadership, LLC which has been engaged by the Board to assist it in the search. The consultants will describe the process and estimated timetable for conducting the search. The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to hearing participant responses to three prompts: (1) From your perspective, what would attract a highly-qualified educator to seek the position of Superintendent in our school district? (2) What do you see as some of the major leadership challenges that the new Superintendent will face over the next three to five years? (3) What types of prior experiences and personal and professional qualities would you hope the new Superintendent will have?
Information from this meeting, and from other meetings with members of the Briarcliff Manor school community, will be synthesized into a set of search specifications that the Board anticipates approving at its meeting on January 24, 2011.
If you can't make Thursday's meeting, you can fill out a survey online and lend your thoughts on the matter. The questionnaire is available here. Once completed, you can send the survey by email or fax to School Leadership or to the district clerk.
