Superintendent Search Committee
The Board of Education, which is also acting as the Superintendent Search Committee, selected Ray and Associates to conduct the search for a new superintendent. Ray and Associates is launching the search process this fall with the community engagement phase, gathering input on the qualities desired in a new superintendent. The process will culminate in the appointment of a new superintendent in spring 2017, effective for the 2017-2018 school year.
In October, Ray and Associates, the Board of Education's search firm, conducted an online survey and hosted public forums and focus groups to interact with the Greenwich community. The purpose of these interactions was to determine the qualities most desired in candidates for the Superintendent of the Greenwich Public Schools.
The comments submitted by survey respondents are available upon request.
