BOARD OF EDUCATION SEEKS COMMUNITY INPUT

Posted March 9 at 8:29am

The Minisink Valley Board of Education has initiated the process of selecting an individual to serve as the next superintendent of schools upon the retirement of Mr. John P. Latini at the end of this school year.

As directed by Education Law, the board of education has the sole responsibility for selecting and appointing the superintendent. However, the board believes the input and viewpoint of various stakeholders will serve as an invaluable resource in assisting the board in making this extremely important decision.

Therefore, members of the community are being invited to form a focus group to meet with Mr. William Hecht, the search consultant assisting with the process.  The board is asking that those who wish to serve on this committee commit to the following dates from 4:15 to 5:15 PM on each date:

March 24, 2015
April 13, 14, and 15, 2015

If you are interested and able to commit to all four dates, please contact the district clerk, Debbie Roda, at 355-5115 or dlroda@minisink.com by Monday, March 16, 2015.
