Dear Staff and Community Members,
The Norwalk City Board of Education has contracted with the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) to assist us with our search for a new superintendent. In our effort to make the best possible selection, we have included in the search process a time for our consultant, Cheryl Ryan, to meet with staff and community members in a number of focus group settings. The focus groups are intended to help us develop a profile for our next school leader, informed by the common themes that emerge. This will be helpful during the candidate screening and interview phase as we search for the perfect fit.
The conversations will take place during several sessions on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 – each designated for a targeted audience – and will focus on three areas:
- Major issues facing the district for the next three to five years;
- Performance expectations for the next superintendent; and
- Personal and professional qualities to be sought in the next superintendent.
The schedule for the district’s focus groups is below. We hope you can attend. All sessions will take place at Norwalk High School, in the Fisher-Titus Large Group Instruction Room.
Community Members 12 noon & 6 p.m.
District administrators 2 p.m.
OAPSE staff members 3 p.m.
NTA staff members 4 p.m.
Community Members 6 p.m.
On behalf of the Board of Education, thank you in advance for your willingness to participate and for your dedication to the students in the Norwalk City School District.
