Superintendent Search Characteristics Survey

BOE Inviting You
to Complete Superintendent Search Characteristics Survey

Dear USD 409 Staff, Parents, and Community Members,

As you are aware, Dr. Susan Myers, Superintendent of Schools, is retiring at the end of this school year on June 30, 2019.  

With the Board of Education (BOE) accepting Dr. Myers' resignation for purposes of retirement at the November 12, 2018, BOE meeting, the Atchison Public Schools BOE has begun it's search for a new superintendent.   

Staff, Parents, and Community engagement are critical as we work to identify our next superintendent for Atchison.  The BOE invites staff, parents, and community members to share their ideas on characteristics the community is seeking in its next superintendent.  

The BOE has contracted with the Kansas Association of School Boards (KASB) to facilitate the superintendent search process, engage the Atchisoncommunity, and gather input.  Information collected through a survey and focus groups will help the Board build a profile for a superintendent that will best meet the District needs.

The online survey will close at 11:59 p.m., November 27th.  
In addition to the surveys, a public meeting will be held to gather characteristic input.
