Superintendent Search Forums Coming Nov. 4, Nov. 10
The Board of Education is holding virtual public forums to gather community comment on the educational priorities and leadership qualities for its next superintendent. The Board has launched a national search for its next superintendent, who will begin serving on July 1, 2022.
Forums are scheduled for:
- Thursday, Nov. 4, 7–9 p.m. Interpretation will be available for Spanish, Mandarin, French and American Sign Language.
- Wednesday, Nov. 10, 7–9 p.m. Interpretation will be available for Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean and American Sign Language.
Working in partnership with the search firm of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates, the Board is committed to hiring the best person to lead MCPS as the system prepares students for success in college and career. The search will be guided by the Board’s core values, strategic priorities and desired characteristics gathered this year from input by stakeholders in Montgomery County. The Board will gather input from the community on the critical characteristics of the next superintendent in a number of ways, including a survey, virtual town halls, interviews and focus groups with a broad spectrum of community leaders. All of this information will inform the selection of the next superintendent.
