The Board of Education has posted an online survey and will seek public input as it searches for a new Superintendent of Schools.
Superintendent Dr. Brad Draeger has announced his retirement at the end of this school year. Draeger landed many accomplishments as head of the 5,800-student district, including improved student achievement, enhanced facilities, improved technology, and provided inclusionary programs for in-district special education students.
The District is asking members of the community to fill out a survey to help with the search. Click here to participate in the online survey.
The survey will close on Tuesday, January 22 at the end of the business day.
Two community forums are also planned: 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, January 22 at Heritage Middle School Auditorium; and 9 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, January 24 at the Livingston Public Schools Administration Building, 11 Foxcroft Drive.
The Board of Education is trying to set criteria for the background, training and experience necessary for the new Superintendent of Schools.
Information gathered, together with input from other focus groups, will be used to shape a variety of candidate review documents and the interview questions. A search consultant, Jamie Savedoff, will present a report on the findings at 7:30 p.m., Monday, January 28 at the Livingston High School auditorium.
The Board of Education is working with the Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, a consulting firm that specializes in assisting school boards with the search process.
