• The Board of Education and School Exec Connect provided an overview of the Superintendent Search, with dates for each stage of the process. In the beginning phase, School Exec Connect will develop a profile of the characteristics desired in a new Superintendent.  An online survey is available to the community, and focus groups are scheduled from November 5-13.
