Superintendent Search: Engagement Opportunities

Creation of a Leadership Profile

As the next step in our search for our new superintendent, District 65 is seeking feedback for the creation of a Leadership Profile. This is an important step in the process and we would like to hear from all members of our community.

The Leadership Profile identifies the critical skill sets, characteristics, and expertise the new superintendent should have in order to meet the diverse needs of our community. The profile will be used as part of the candidate screening and interview process. We recognize the unique perspectives within our community and believe it's important that everyone has the opportunity to share their voice as it relates to the vision for District 65 and the qualities of new leadership. 

It's important that we identify a leader who can ensure that vision meets reality and that a high-quality educational experience is provided to every child within our community. There are several upcoming opportunities to share your voice as part of this important process.
