Well folks, the superintendent search is now under way. The Board decided to hire the OSBA to run the search. While I have misgivings about this decision (it was the OSBA who found us our last superintendent), I also recognize that, for a Board composed of mostly novices, running a search itself was a daunting task.
Above is the list of community meetings that will be held this week. The purpose of the meetings is to solicit community input on the qualities and qualifications we desire in a new superintendent. Please get the word out to your friends and neighbors so that no one misses this opportunity. The two most crucial meetings are the community forum on Wednesday evening (6:30 - 7:30 pm, CHS cafeteria) and the forum for the Hispanic community on Thursday evening (6:30 - 7:30 pm, Henry Hill). Please plan to attend.
On the school district webpage is an additional chance to register your opinions. Go to: http://www.central.k12.or.us/ to fill out the short survey. The results will be compiled and shared with the Board.
We all worked very hard last year to get us to this point. It's now time to choose a new and improved superintendent for our school district. Let's do our very best to ensure that this time our district gets the kind of leadership we want and that our children deserve.
