1/12/2018 - Community Encouraged to Participate in Superintendent Search

Process kicks off with surveys - now available on district’s website

WATERBURY - The community will have several opportunities to shape the search for Waterbury Public School’s next leader, beginning with a couple of surveys now available on the front page of District’s website,

Ray and Associates is planning a number of phases, beginning with the launch of three community surveys this week.


Community surveys launched
The surveys, posted on January 12, 2018 to the District website, are designed to gather feedback regarding what traits Waterbury Public Schools families, employees and residents would like to see in the next Superintendent. 

Below are links to surveys in English, Spanish and Albanian. Both will remain open until January 30, 2018.

In the “Community District Review” survey, Waterbury Public School stakeholders have the ability to rate the school district in a number of areas including how well Waterbury is addressing the achievement gap, the social and emotional needs of students and preparing its students for college or career.

The “Qualities desired in the new Superintendent” allows stakeholders to specify what traits they would most like to see in the new, permanent Superintendent.

The surveys, together, take less than five minutes to complete and will help to form the questions used in stakeholder focus groups and during candidate interviews.

Community feedback
At the end of January, Ray and Associates will be in town to conduct a series of meetings with various stakeholder groups representing parents, employees and the community. Additionally, a forum will be scheduled for anyone who would like to provide feedback. The meeting will be open to the public.
