*Mora Superintendent Search*


School district conducts superintendent search; district looking for input from the Mora community


The Mora Public School District is conducting a search for a new superintendent. The school board is working with the Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) to provide guidance and assist with the planning.


The school board is seeking input from residents of the Mora school district to help in the search for the new superintendent. The information collected will be used to help shape the candidate interview questions. All community members are invited to participate, and there will be two opportunities to provide input. MSBA search consultants will be on hand to facilitate the listening sessions.


1. Fill out the online version of the Mora Public Schools Superintendent Search Survey. To complete the online version of the survey, click here. Hard copy versions are also available in the District, Elementary and High School Offices, and attached to this email. If using a hard copy, please return to the District Office.

2. Attend a community forum session scheduled on Monday, February 3rd or Tuesday, February 4th.
