Board selects three community members to sit on stakeholder committee

The Board of Education has narrowed its superintendent search down to five candidates from a pool of 26 applicants. The Board is now in the process of creating a stakeholder committee to assist in the interview process. After asking for interested participants, the Board has selected three community members to sit on the committee.

Board releases online survey results

As part of the superintendent search, the Board of Education released an Online Community Survey, which asked participants to list questions they want the board to ask candidates, what they feel are the greatest needs of the district and to rate the characteristics for the position.

Questar III BOCES created the online community survey with input from the Board of Education. A link to the survey was initially posted on the district’s website on Jan. 19, and the survey closed on the evening of Feb. 1. A total of 583 people responded to the survey.

On March 2, the Board released a summary of the results of the Online Community Survey. Please click here to read the detailed report.
