Dear District Staff and Community Members:
The Dunlap Community Unit School District No. 323 Board of Education has begun the search process for a new superintendent. We have selected SCHOOL EXEC CONNECT, an educational search firm, to assist us in this process.
We are interested in receiving your input about the new superintendent. We would appreciate it if you would take about five minutes to fill out an online survey, which will be available from October 3rd – 17th, 2014; please check the District website on October 3rd for the survey link, which can be accessed by clicking on “Superintendent Search Information” from the home page of the website.
In addition to the survey, if you would like to provide input on the district’s strengths, the district’s challenges, and the characteristics the next superintendent should possess, SCHOOL EXEC CONNECT consultants invite you to attend one of the open forums listed below.
District Staff Members
Wednesday, October 1st from 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. in the Dunlap Middle School Commons
Dunlap Community Members
Wednesday, October 1st from 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. in the Dunlap Middle School Commons
Findings from the survey, the open forums, and several focus group conversations will be reported to the Board on October 22nd.
As we move forward, our most important consideration is securing the strongest candidate pool and ultimately the best person to lead our District. We plan that all those involved in the search will hold candidate names confidential throughout the process. One or two Staff/Community Committees will be invited to interview the final three candidates and share their feedback to the Board of Education.
The Board of Education looks forward to your support and assistance with this very important undertaking. Please feel free to contact the consultants assisting us if you have any questions or comments regarding the search: Dr. Linda Hanson firstname.lastname@example.org, Dr. Robert Hanson email@example.com, or Ms. Diane Robertson firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to your input as we search for a new superintendent to lead Dunlap Community Unit School District No. 323.
Ms. Amy Fairfield Doering
President, Board of Education
