As you may be aware, the Cedar Rapids Community School District has initiated its search for a new superintendent. To counsel us through this important process, we have retained the services of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA), a consulting firm that specializes in assisting school boards with the consideration of candidates for superintendent.

A key step in this process is to identify the characteristics we will be seeking in our new superintendent. We would greatly appreciate your input and assistance with this important initiative.

Here are the four zoom input sessions taking place. Each session is limited to 30 participates. Please click on the dates below to register.

In addition to the above listed Zoom sessions and the below listed survey option, earlier this week CRCSD sent invites for in-person sessions to the following groups: CRCSD staff, CRCSD families and students, civic leaders, community partners, community leaders, and local union contact for forwarding to members.

If you can’t attend one of the input sessions, you can provide your input via this survey link. This survey is designed to gather your perceptions of the school district and the importance of various characteristics found in effective superintendents. The information will be used to determine the desired characteristics of the new Superintendent. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
