On Wednesday, May 15, 2013, the Atlanta Board of Education held its first Superintendent Search Committee community meetings in the North Region at Coretta Scott King YWLA, Harper-Archer Middle School and Sutton Middle School.
The Board of Education’s Superintendent Search Committee will also hold three additional community input sessions on May16, 20 and 21. The Superintendent Search Committee has committed to gathering input from all key stakeholders such as parents, teachers and students. The sessions are designed to give citizens the opportunity to provide feedback on the characteristics they believe are critical in the next Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent.
“We are at the beginning of the process of creating a superintendent profile for the district,” explains Reuben McDaniel, Board Chair. “This is a place where the public really needs to be involved. We are asking the public to come out and participate in an open forum, and out of that, the search committee will put together a profile so we can begin looking for potential candidates.”
The Superintendent Search Committee will hold community meetings at schools in every cluster. The purpose of the meetings is to obtain input regarding the profile for the next superintendent. The upcoming meeting dates and locations are listed below. All meetings will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
- May 16: South Region meetings will be held at Long MS and Price MS.
- May 20: West Region meetings will be held at Brown MS, Bunche MS and Young MS.
- May 21: East Region meetings will be held at Inman MS and King MS.
