Community invited to give input on new superintendent

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Baldwin County Board of Education is still seeking community input in regards to the characteristics of the next school superintendent. Local officials, parents, students, school system employees and citizens are invited to provide school board members with their ideas during a public forum slated for 6 p.m. Thursday at the board office, located at 110 N. ABC St.

“Individuals will be able to ask questions and discuss the qualities they would like to see in the next superintendent. All members of the school board will be there to listen,” said school board Chair John Jackson, District 4. “The board values the opinions and concerns of the community in regards to who our next school superintendent is going to be.”

Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) Board Development Specialist Bill Sampson will mediate the forum.

“We really look forward to having a lot of participation from the community and hearing from concerned shareholders,” Jackson said. “It’s going to be an important decision the board will make in hiring a new superintendent, so we want as much input as possible.”

The community can also complete a brief survey and provide input online. The survey can be found on the school system’s website. A summary of the survey results will be given to the school board for its use as applications are reviewed and select candidates are interviewed.

“The public is invited to participate in this process by completing a survey about the qualifications that they feel are most important for the new leader to possess,” Sampson said.

GSBA posted the superintendent’s position two weeks ago on the websites of GSBA, Teach Georgia and the local school system. Qualified applicants seeking the position must have the application postmarked by March 21 to GSBA. To be considered for the position, all applicants' files must contain a formal letter of application indicating a desire to be considered a candidate, a completed application, a resume that lists three references and an official or photocopy of official college transcripts.
