Wayne County Board of Education Seeks Public Input on Superintendent Search

The Wayne County Board of Education, with the support of Ray & Associates, Inc, is seeking 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 WCPS superintendent.

Community & Staff Survey:  The Board invites students, parents, staff, 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 link on the main WCPS webpage:

Community & Staff Survey – Haitian Creole or  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C6GYD68

All surveys must be completed by Sunday, February 26, 2022. Results will be compiled, summarized, and presented by Ray & Associates, Inc. at the regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, March 6, 2023.

D. Wade Leatham, Board Chair, states that the Wayne County Board of Education is committed to ensuring community input is an essential part of its search process.

“The search for a Superintendent is one of the most important responsibilities of a board of education,” adds Chair Leatham. “One of the reasons our Board selected Ray & Associates is because they demonstrated the importance of community engagement in this process. We deeply value the feedback from those we serve and look forward to using the survey results and other community engagement opportunities in a meaningful way to help shape the search for our district’s next leader.”

In addition to the community and staff surveys, Ray & Associates, Inc. will facilitate constituent and stakeholder group meetings in February as part of the search process.
