ANNOUNCEMENTS

SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH FOCUS GROUP MEETINGS

Fremont Re-2 School District contracted with the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB) to facilitate the search for a new Superintendent.  The search process relies a great deal on the input and involvement of the district staff, parents and community members to reach the best possible outcome. 

 CASB has hired an independent contractor to provide the direct services with the school district in the search process.  Mr. John Merriam has been working as a private contractor and consultant with CASB for the last nine years.  He has been selected by CASB and the Fremont Re-2 School District to provide facilitation services in the Superintendent search.

 The first step in the development of qualifications for the Superintendent application is to collect input from all district stakeholders.  Focus Group meetings have been set up to accommodate this initial process in the search. The Focus Group schedule is as follows:

 Oct. 24, 2017- 6:00 PM, Penrose School library.

Oct. 25, 2017- 6:00 PM, Fremont Elementary School.

Oct. 26, 2017- 6:00 PM, Florence High School library.

 The Focus Group sessions will last about 90 minutes with the CASB consultant facilitating the process. The information derived from the Focus Group report to the School Board will help develop the criteria for the Superintendent application, scoring criteria for screening all applications, development of questions for the interviews, and scoring criteria for the final selection of a new Superintendent. 

Please plan to attend one of the scheduled sessions and provide valuable input to better assure the credibility of the search process.
