Superintendent Search update – engagement opportunities and timeline

Superintendent search firm McPherson and Jacobson has been working with the Board of Education over the last few weeks to outline staff and community engagement opportunity sessions and timeline decisions surrounding the search for LSR7’s next superintendent.  The below information identifies opportunities for staff and community engagement. These are opportunities for the community to provide input, feedback and thoughts for the Board of Education as they work through a superintendent search.

Engagement opportunities:
