Letter: How to Help Pick the Next Superintendent

Take a survey and attend a focus group to make your opinions known about what qualities you want in Darien's next superintendent of schools.

To the editor:

As part of the Superintendent search process, NESDEC will be conducting a series of focus groups for parents, staff and community members to solicit input about the attributes, experiences and desired goals for a new superintendent.

Public officials are invited to attend a focus group on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 5:45 p.m; Community members are invited to attend on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 7:00 p.m. Parents are encouraged to attend the Wednesday session at 7 p.m. or a separate Parent Focus Group on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 11 a.m.

In addition, we will hold a separate Focus Group for Parents with special needs students on Monday, Feb. 3 at 11 a.m. All Focus groups will be held in the Board of Education Meeting Room at 35 Leroy Ave. For those who cannot attend one of the scheduled Focus Groups or prefer to provide written input, please direct your comments to:
