Dear Staff, Parents and Community Members:

Our Superintendent Search Consultant, Ron Barker, will be conducting several Focus Group sessions throughout our school system between December 10 and 18.  The purpose of these sessions is to gain insight and feedback from various stakeholder groups regarding the most important attributes and qualifications they believe the next superintendent of schools in RSU5 should possess.

These sessions will be very informal, will last approximately 45 minutes, and attendance is strictly voluntary.  Attendees will be asked to share their views on a few questions regarding RSU5 and to complete an attributes/qualification form.  Upon completion of all of the Focus Group sessions, a brief summary report will be developed and shared with the School Board, Search Committee and other interested parties.  It is hoped that this information will be helpful and assist in the selection process for the next RSU5 superintendent.
