Note:  Meetings at Norwalk High and Calvary Baptist Church that were cancelled due to the storm have now been rescheduled.   Norwalk High will take place on Monday, February 2 at 7 pm, and Calvary Baptist Church on Tuesday, February 10 at 7 pm.

The Norwalk Board of Education has released the schedule for Stakeholder Engagement meetings for the new Superintendent Search.  The community input sessions have been scheduled to allow everyone in the community the opportunity to share feedback on the characteristics they would like to see in their next Superintendent of Schools.

“Since we completed a very extensive outreach process less than two years ago, the Board decided to conduct three public sessions this year,” said Michael Lyons, Board of Education Chair.  “We have chosen easily-accessible venues for our community meetings to reach out to as many people as possible,” Lyons added.

Stakeholder Engagement is important when developing the position profile for a Superintendent Search.  PROACT Search, the firm chosen by the Board to conduct the search, will also gather feedback from the community through an online survey which will be announced shortly. The survey responses, along with (i) the feedback and input that will be provided throughout the Stakeholder Engagement process, (ii) the results of the 2013 Stakeholder Engagement, and (iii) the Strategic Plan adopted by the Board in 2014, will provide the basis for the types of candidates to be recruited.

The recruitment process will commence in February, with the goal for the Board being selection of a new superintendent by mid-May.
