The dates and times have been scheduled for two public meetings in which you can share what traits you want to see in the next Wake County schools superintendent.
The meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday in the school board meeting room, 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh. The search firm of Heidrick & Struggles will run the meetings and use the feedback to help develop the criteria that the school board will use for selecting a superintendent.
"We want to provide an opportunity for members of the general public to participate in a dialogue regarding the qualities and qualifications they believe are necessary to have in our next Superintendent," said Debra Goldman, chairwoman of school board's Superintendent Selection Committee, in a press release. "It's important that we gather a variety of points of view as we develop the criteria we will use in selecting the next Superintendent of our school system."
In addition to the public meetings, Heidrick will hold private meetings with groups such as the leaders of the chambers of commerce, the Wake County chapter of the N.C. Association of Educators, the Wake County PTA Council, the Wake Education Partnership and the Civitas Institute.
