Normandy Schools Collaborative Superintendent Search

The search for the next superintendent of Normandy Schools Collaborative has begun and now is your opportunity to participate.

The Joint Executive Governing Board (JEGB) is seeking community input in selecting the next superintendent for the district. Part of that process involves a community meeting for NSC parents, which will be held Thursday, October 13, at 5:30 p.m. at Lucas Crossing School Complex, located at 7837 Natural Bridge Road.

An online survey also allows you to indicate the most desired leadership qualities the new superintendent should have. The results of this survey will be used by the JEGB and consultants in seeking and screening applicants as well as for the development of the interview content. The survey will close at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 17.

The Normandy High School Homecoming parade and football game will be held on Saturday, October 15. The parade steps off at 9 am at Barack Obama School. The Vikings Football team takes on Affton High School at 11 am at Viking Field.

If groups would like to participate in the parade, please contact Terrence Hamilton or see the application attached below.

Upcoming Listening Session Scheduled

In an effort to hear directly from families, Interim Superintendent Dr. Crystal Reiter is holding listening sessions. These will be very informal, and a light meal will be provided. All sessions will be held at the district's central office at 3855 Lucas and Hunt Road in either the board room or room 207.

  • November 3- 8 a.m. in Room 207
  • November 16- 5:30 p.m. in the Board Room
  • December 8- 8 a.m. in Room 207

We will work to keep these meetings small in an effort to have meaningful conversations and schedule more of these meetings throughout the school year.

Please RSVP to Ms. Lori Thompson if you would like to attend.
