The Elwood Board of Education has begun its search for its new Superintendent, voting at the June 2023 meeting to enlist the aid of Western Suffolk BOCES in the search process. Representatives from Western Suffolk BOCES will discuss the process at the District Board of Education meeting on September 14, 2023.
Community Survey – Input Needed!
Community and staff members are asked for their input through an online survey open until October 15, 2023. Areas such as rating the importance of a potential candidate’s qualifications and personal characteristics, as well as his/her abilities and experience with school staffing, instruction, board relations, district operations and finance will be polled. The survey can be accessed here. A hard copy can be picked up at the District Office or the Public Library.
Representatives from a variety of district stakeholder groups will also have an opportunity to meet the search facilitators in October 2023 to provide additional input.
Recruitment efforts will be extensive, with interested candidates submitting application information through November 6, 2023. Interviews are expected to begin in January 2024 and continue through several rounds which will conclude no later than April 2024.
The Board of Education will thoughtfully consider the community survey results and stakeholder input in their selection of the new Superintendent. A final decision by the Board will be announced no later than the May 2024 Board meeting.
