A series of six community input meetings are being held in six high schools throughout the district between October 3 and October 11, 2011. Invitations and fliers containing the dates, times and locations are going out to all employees, parents, students, volunteers, partners and community groups and members.

Board Chairman Frank Barbieri is conducting a ParentLink call out to all parents of school district students personally inviting them to the meetings to give their ideas and suggestions about the next Superintendent. The Principals in each of the six high schools will also call the parents of their students.


A banner on the District web site  links readers to a special Superintendent Search website that contains a community survey and other detailed information, including Spanish and Creole translations, about the search process. Additional information, including Superintendent qualifications, will be added to the site in the coming days.
