At the November School Board meetings, the School Board engaged in initial conversations about the superintendent search, including sharing their hopes and dreams, reviewing key documents such as the superintendent job description, policies related to the superintendent and superintendent-school board working relationship, and learning about search services from the Minnesota School Board Association (MSBA). The School Board also reviewed sample communications and engagement strategies that emphasize student voice, and multiple racial and cultural perspectives.
The School Board expressed a strong commitment to a search process that builds trust through transparency, consistency, communication and a strong engagement process, especially with our diverse communities.
On November 28, the School Board approved partnering with MSBA for superintendent search services. Students and families can expect to learn more about the search process and engagement opportunities in the coming weeks and months.
The School Board will meet on Dec. 19 to continue their conversations about the search process. School Board meetings take place at 6:30 p.m. in Room 55 at Central Community Center (6300 Walker St.) The meetings are also live-streamed on the district's Youtube Channel.
