The members of the Pawling Board of Education cordially invite all members of the school community to attend a meeting on either Monday, January 28, 2019 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in Pawling Elementary School’s multipurpose room or Tuesday, January 29, 2019 from 8:30-9:30 p.m. in the Pawling High School’s library to assist the Board in establishing direction for the selection process for the new Superintendent of Schools.
The first part of the process is to identify the personal and professional qualities and experiences that the Pawling school community would like the new superintendent of schools to possess. At this meeting, you will have an opportunity to meet one or more of the search consultants from School Leadership, LLC, which has been engaged by the Board to assist it in the search.
The meeting will be devoted to hearing participant responses to three prompts: (1) From your perspective, what would attract a highly-qualified educator to seek the position of Superintendent in our school district? (2) What do you see as some of the major leadership challenges that the new Superintendent will face over the next three to five years? (3) What types of prior experiences and personal and professional qualities would you hope the new Superintendent will have?
Information from this meeting, and from other meetings with members of the Pawling school community, will be synthesized into a set of search specifications that will then guide the Board of Education as it undertakes the search for the new Superintendent.
If you are unable to attend either of these meetings, we will be providing a brief online survey in the future for obtaining your input. Please look for the link on the PCSD website after January 20, 2019.
Thank you in advance for participating in this important process.
Dr. Jeffrey A. Asher
President, Pawling School Board
