Petition supporting the CUSD Superintendent Search
During the first week of 2017, the School Board will be reviewing the Superintendent applications they received and deciding whom to interview. Stay tuned for possible news on finalists soon!
At their August 24th meeting, the School Board unanimously voted to conduct a national search for our next Superintendent. Please feel free to continue to add to this petition to show both appreciation for their decision and support for their upcoming efforts to make this the best possible process for our community.
As you may be aware, CUSD has been without a permanent Superintendent for most of the past year. Our prior search firm, therefore, is obligated to provide another national search free of charge. Whether this firm is used or not, the School Board would be following standard good practice to use that process to vet all qualified candidates, whether internal or external. This way, the person who is selected has the full confidence of the parent and school community. Please join us in signing this petition to urge the Board to immediately begin a national search so we can find the best possible Superintendent for our children.
On behalf of our school community, we petition the School Board to follow standard procedure by promptly conducting a national search to find the most suitable internal or external candidate for Superintendent of the Carmel Unified School District.
