Search for School Superintendent

Search for School Superintendent

As people in the community are aware, we have begun the process of searching for a new Superintendent of Schools.  An important part of the process is to solicit community input about the attributes, experiences and desired goals for a new superintendent.  This will be of valuable assistance to the Board of Education and Search Committee as they interview the candidates.

Dr. Elizabeth Osga, a search consultant with the New England School Development Council (NESDEC), will meet with staff, parents and community members in focus groups this week.  Each session will require about 1 - 1 1/2 hours.  The dates and times are listed below.  All Preston citizens are welcome to attend and to participate.  No previous sign-up is required.

Additionally, if you are unable to attend one of these sessions, the consultants would be pleased to receive your comments in writing.  Please direct them to:  Dr. Elizabeth Osga, NESDEC, Preston Superintendent Search, 28 Lord Road, Marlborough, MA 01752.

The Preston School District wants and values your opinions.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to participate.
