Superintendent Search Begins with Open Public Forums, Jan. 12 & 14

Posted by Community Relations on 1/7/2016

The Phoenix Union Governing Board has initiated its search for a new superintendent and has retained the services of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, a consulting firm that specializes in assisting boards with the consideration of candidates for superintendent. A first step in this process is to identify the characteristics the Board will be seeking in a superintendent. A series of focus groups has been scheduled, January 12-14 with various employee groups and community stakeholders. There will also be three evening Open Public Forums for students, parents, staff and community to attend. 

The Open Forums will be Tuesday at Cesar Chavez, Room 5104; and Thursday at Alhambra High School Lecture Hall and Metro Tech High School Lecture Hall, from 7 -8 p.m. These forums will be facilitated by the consulting firm.
