Running a school district under any circumstances is no easy go and even less so when that district is the recently merged product of two systems. Simply put, that person will need to have some serious skills, along with a toolbox full of top-shelf characteristics.
Faced with finding a superintendent to run the merged Memphis City Schools-Shelby County Schools system, The Shelby County Board of Education (SCBE) reached for the help of PROACT Search. Now the board is reaching for more help – public input.
So, next week the SCBE will host two gatherings to give the public a chance to weigh in on the needed skills and characteristics of the new superintendent.
Here's the basic info:
The first Parent and Community Input Session will be Wednesday, March 20th at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium of East High School, 3206 Poplar Ave.
The second will Thursday, March 21st at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium of Houston High School, 9755 Wolf River Blvd., in Germantown.
If you are unable to attend one (or both) of these sessions, the Board still would like to have your feedback. Follow one of the links below to fill out the online survey.
