The Weldon City Schools Board of Education has extended the deadline for the return of community surveys seeking input in the system’s search for a superintendent.
The deadline is now December 7.
The board has hired the North Carolina School Boards Association to help facilitate its search for its next superintendent.
To that end, the board is seeking direct input from interested students, parents, other members of the community, and staff to help shape the search process and to assist in defining the qualities and characteristics desired in the next WCS superintendent.
The board invites students, parents, and other members of the community to participate in a community survey that can be accessed and completed online by clicking the superintendent search survey at this link.
All surveys must be completed by December 7 with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at a regularly scheduled board meeting subsequent to that date.
Paper copies of the survey may be obtained from and returned to Kitty Thomason, executive administrative assistant, Weldon City Schools, at Weldon City Schools Central Office, located at 301 Mulberry Street, Weldon, NC 27890.
In addition, all employees of WCS will have an opportunity to complete a separate online staff survey.
Details about completing the employee version of the superintendent search survey will be communicated via school system email.
Statements from community groups and organizations
In addition to input received from the surveys, local groups and organizations may submit written statements regarding the leadership qualities that they consider important in the next superintendent.
These statements should be received no later than December 7.
Students, parents, other members of the community, and staff also may sign up to address the board during the public comment period at any upcoming regularly scheduled board meeting.
All individuals and groups must sign up to speak before the meeting begins and must otherwise comply with applicable board policy.
