The Sun letter to the editor: Frontier Central Board of Educationís invitation to community meeting

Editor:
The members of the Frontier Board of Education cordially invite all members of the Frontier Central School community to attend a meeting on Nov. 5, 2013 at 6 p.m. at Frontier Central High School auditorium, to assist the board in establishing direction for the selection process for the new superintendent of schools.

The board is facing the most important task it ever faces: replacing its chief school officer. We are confident that the community will want to be a part of this process.

The first, and probably the most important, part of the process is to identify the personal and professional qualities and experiences that the Frontier school community would like the new superintendent of schools to possess.

At this meeting, community members will have an opportunity to meet Dr. Howard Smith and Mr. Allan Berry, the search consultants from School Leadership LLC, the firm which has been engaged by the board to assist it in the search.

The consultants will describe the process and estimated timetable for conducting the search.

The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to hearing participant responses to three prompts which include: (1) From their perspective, what would attract a highly-qualified educator to seek the position of superintendent in our school district? (2) What does a community member see as some of the major leadership challenges that the new superintendent will face, over the next three to five years? (3) What types of prior experiences and personal and professional qualities would one hope the new superintendent will have?

Information from this meeting, and from other meetings with members of the Frontier school community, will be synthesized into a set of search specifications that the board anticipates approving at its meeting on Dec. 17, 2013.

These specifications will then guide the consultants in their work, and the board of education, as it undertakes the search for the new superintendent.

If community members are unable to attend this meeting, we would ask that they complete the brief survey www.surveymonkey.com/s/frontiersearch, which provides an alternate means for obtaining input.

The Frontier Central Board of Education extends their appreciation to those participating in this important process.

Janet MacGregor Plarr
Frontier Central School District president
