CMS Seeks Public Input On Superintendent Search

The CMS school board wants to hear from the community about what people are looking for in the next school superintendent. The district is holding six meetings at schools throughout Mecklenburg County next week to gather people's opinions. People will break up into small groups led by facilitators. School board chairman Eric Davis says the goal is, "to not only share those thoughts with moderators who will be gathering the input, but also with each other and to have more of an informal conversation or dialogue." Davis says those ideas will be compiled into a report that will help the board decide what traits, experience and skills the district needs. CMS has already surveyed about 9,300 on their thoughts about a new superintendent. Meetings held at 6:30-8:30: December 5: Johnson C. Smith University (Biddle Hall) Butler High December 6: Myers Park High Albemarle Road Middle December 8: Vance High North Mecklenburg High
