Winchester Superintendent Search
The Winchester Public Schools is beginning the search for the next Superintendent of Schools. CABE Search Services, an educational executive recruitment firm, and Dr. Jacqueline Jacoby, Senior Search Consultant for CABE will facilitate and assist the Winchester Public Schools and the CT State Department of Education Receiver, with this important undertaking.
The first step in the Winchester search process will be to seek input from our constituents through focus groups and an online survey. Focus Groups are being planned for March 2017 with faculty, administrators, support staff, parents, and community members to ensure that we hear from a broad range of constituents and find areas of common ground. The goal is to solicit constituents and stakeholders to participate in the superintendent search process by sharing their personal insights about Winchester schools and the essential leadership qualities of the next superintendent
Focus group invitations and dates will be placed on the district’s website at http://www.winchesterschools.org/ and sent out through our district’s newsletter and Facebook page as well as our School Messenger service. The Superintendent Survey will be available immediately on the Winchester Public Schools website through March 24, 2017. Anyone who wishes to share their views but is unable to attend a focus group can complete a Superintendent Search Survey.
A Superintendent Search link will be posted on the district website www.winchesterschools.org providing periodic updates regarding the search process. It is anticipated that a new Superintendent will be named with a starting date on or before July 1, 2017. We encourage everyone to participate as your input is valued.
