Superintendent Search

September 12, 2020

Dear PPS Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

The Princeton Public Schools Board of Education has begun the search process for a new superintendent. As you may be aware, Dr. Barry Galasso is leading the district on an interim basis. We have selected School Exec Connect, an educational search firm, to assist us in this process.

ONLINE SURVEY
We are interested in receiving your input about the new superintendent. We would appreciate it if you would take about five minutes to fill out an online survey that will be available through October 4, 2020. Please click here to take the survey in English and click here for Spanish.

OPEN FORUMS (Virtual)
In addition to the survey, if you would like to provide input on the district’s strengths, the district’s challenges, and the characteristics the next superintendent should possess, School Exec Connect consultants invite you to attend a virtual open forum for PPS parents, guardians and community members on Monday, October 5, at 4:30 PM. To sign up, please click here. You will receive the Zoom link for the virtual open forum via email prior to October 5.

FOCUS GROUPS (Virtual)
Our search consultant will be running a number of focus group conversations as well.  PPS parents who would like to take part in a focus group should please click here to indicate your interest no later than September 18. Participants for each focus group will be chosen at random from those who volunteer. If your name is randomly selected, you will be contacted the week of September 21 via email by our search consultant, Kevin O’Mara.

Findings from the survey, the open forums, and focus group conversations will be used to develop a New Superintendent Profile that will be reported to the Board on October 27, 2020.

As we move forward, our most important consideration is securing the strongest candidate pool and ultimately the best person to lead our district. To that end, the Board of Education has decided to conduct a confidential search. The Board of Education looks forward to your support and assistance with this very important undertaking. 

Please feel free to email the lead consultant assisting us if you have any questions or comments regarding the search: Dr. Kevin O’Mara kevin.omara@schoolexecconnect.com.  We look forward to your input as we search for a new superintendent to lead the Princeton Public Schools.
