We recently shared with you Superintendent Foster's intent to retire at the end of the 2017-18 school year. Soon after the announcement the school board took action, selecting the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB) to conduct a national superintendent search on its behalf.
That search starts with you! District educators and staff, along with members of the community, are invited to participate in various focus group meetings over the next two weeks to contribute to the development of a leadership profile for a new superintendent of schools. A consultant from CASB will facilitate.
Hiring season in the field of education is already well underway across the country for the 2018-19 school year. We want to make sure that Weld RE-5J does not miss out on interviewing the very best candidates, which is why we have scheduled the focus groups so soon. If you are unable to attend the focus groups, an input survey is available on the district website from February 12-20.
The board is eager to hear from all stakeholders on the leadership qualities and skills necessary for the new superintendent to be successful. Your feedback will be gathered and used by CASB to advertise the position and will be the basis of interview questions for candidates. We remain on schedule to hire a new superintendent in May. We are confident that we have the time necessary to thoroughly evaluate all candidates based on the needs and desires of our community.
