BOE Superintendent Search Community Forum
Nov 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The DeKalb County School Board is asking the community for its input as it begins its search for the district’s next superintendent. The board kicked off the search process on October 7, 2019, by meeting with BWP and Associates, a national search firm, which specializes in assisting boards that are seeking superintendents. “Selecting a new superintendent is a significant process that requires that we exercise appropriate due diligence and honor the input and ideas from our community stakeholders,” Board Chair Dr. Michael A. Erwin said. “Participation from our parents, students, teachers, business and community partners is critical in helping us shape the leadership profile of what we are looking for in our next superintendent.”

During the community engagement phase, the board and BWP will gather input from the community that will be used to create a unique profile of what the community is looking for from its next school district leader.

Community members can give that input through community forums on November 6 and 7, and through an online survey that will launch on November 4 at https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/superintendent-search/2019-2020/.

This Community Forum is scheduled for:
Region 1: Chamblee Charter High School, Auditorium
Region 2: Tucker High School, Auditorium
Region 3: Lithonia High School, Auditorium
