Forums, survey allow public input in superintendent search

A series of eight public forums next week — along with the availability of an online survey — will offer Beaufort County residents the opportunity to help guide the search for the school district’s next superintendent.
Last month, the Board of Education hired Ray and Associates, an experienced education executive search firm, to coordinate the nationwide search to replace Valerie Truesdale, who retired after a five-year tenure as superintendent.  One of the search firm’s first steps will be collecting broad-based input from parents, students, educators, community and business leaders about the personal and professional characteristics that candidates for the job should possess.
The first public forums will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 10:
• Noon: Whale Branch Early College High School media center
• 7 p.m.: Whale Branch Early College High School media center
The second set of public forums will be held on Thursday, Oct. 11:
• Noon: Beaufort High School
• 7 p.m.: Beaufort High School
An online survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/7B85292.
