  • Open Community Meetings - Specificiations for New Superintendent

     The members of the East Ramapo Board of Education cordially invite all members of the school community to attend a virtual meeting on December 9, 2020 to assist the Board in establishing direction for the selection process for the new Superintendent of Schools.  You have a choice of attending the 2-3 p.m. meeting or the 7-8 p.m. meeting. The link to the online meeting will be posted here on December 9, 2020. The Board is facing the most important task any school board ever faces -  replacing its chief school officer.  We are confident that you will want to be a part of this process. 

    The first, and probably the most important, part of the process is to identify the personal and professional qualities and experiences that the East Ramapo school community would like the new superintendent of schools to possess.  At this meeting, you will have an opportunity to meet one or more of the search consultants from School Leadership, LLC which has been engaged by the Board to assist it in the search.  The consultants will describe the process and estimated timetable for conducting the search.  The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to hearing participant responses to three prompts:  (1) From your perspective, what would attract a highly-qualified educator to seek the position of Superintendent in our school district?  (2)  What do you see as some of the major leadership challenges that the new Superintendent will face over the next three to five years?  (3)  What types of prior experiences and personal and professional qualities would you hope the new Superintendent will have? 

    Information from this meeting, and from other meetings with members of the East Ramapo school community, will be synthesized into a set of search specifications that the Board anticipates approving at a meeting later in December.  These specifications will then guide the Board of Education as it undertakes the search for the new Superintendent. 

    If you are unable to attend this meeting, we would ask that you complete the brief survey which provides an additional means for obtaining your input. The link to the online surveys will be posted here by December 9, 2020. 

    Thank you in advance for participating in this important process.
