This past week, I continued my conversations with community stakeholders and staff leadership. We have begun scheduling group feedback meetings. For the school staff, please see the schedule and links to register for the virtual meetings below.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Superintendent Search District Meetings

An important step of a superintendent search process is developing an “Ideal Candidate Profile” from the feedback of many different stakeholder groups. One avenue the search consultant team will be gathering this information is through facilitated superintendent search meetings. Please join us and provide your feedback to the Newark Board of Education on desired qualities of a successful candidate as the Board prepares to choose the next superintendent of schools.

To attend the superintendent search meeting you must register using the links below. Once registered, the Zoom information will be sent directly to your email address provided during registration.
