SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH 2020

The ECASD School Board is conducting a search for the next Superintendent and we need your help! There will be several opportunities for staff and community involvement throughout the process. Input is welcome and encouraged.

Community Input

Community Forums
Community Forums were held in October and November to gather input. Thank you to all who participated in the forums. There will be opportunities for the community to participate again when finalists are selected and visit in the spring.

Anonymous Survey Opportunity
Thank you to the hundreds of students, families, and other community members who shared their ideas using our anonymous survey (which was available until December 31).  This input will be invaluable for developing effective interview questions and creating the itinerary for candidates’ onsite visits.
