The Scotland Board of Education and the Scotland Elementary Principal Search Committee invite the school and broader community to participate in the search processes for 1) a new Superintendent and 2) a new Principal of Scotland Elementary School.
Late in April, Mary Broderick, CABE Search Services Consultant working with the Board and the Scotland Principal Search Committee, will conduct a series of focus groups via ZOOM to gauge the community’s perspectives on the strengths and challenges of Scotland Elementary School and the qualities, experiences, and characteristics desired in a new Superintendent and the new Principal. We encourage town officials, teachers, administrators, other staff, students, parents, and community members to participate.
In addition, an anonymous survey, with a response deadline of May 7, will be available at this site:
Feedback from the focus groups and surveys will be incorporated into leadership profiles that will guide the Board and the Principal Search Committee in identifying high-quality candidates who best fit the needs of the Scotland Elementary School at this time. The Search Committees expect to accept the profiles at meetings in mid-May.
"We encourage the community to be a part of this important process and look forward to incorporating the results of their participation into the Search Committees’ work,” Brynn Lipstreu, Chair of the Scotland Board of Education, stated.
