Tonight the U of Del group contracted to assist with the superintendent search conducted the first of three forums to gather input from the community as to what the next school leader should look like. I will be attaching three files which show some of the comments that were garnered tonight, and I hope more folks will attend tomorrow nights meeting. I was a little disappointed to only see a small group tonight (~25), and most of them were some how tied to the district already. (~7 teachers, 5 board members, 1 board candidate, and 2 news media)
There were three questions asked of the group tonight:
1. What are the three greatest strengths of the district?
2. What are the greatest challenges facing the district in the next five years?
3. Finally, what are the three most important characteristic/qualification for the next superintendent?
Take a look at the summaries from tonight’s group:
