Waurika Public Schools has selected the Oklahoma State School Boards Association to assist in its search for the next superintendent, and school board members is including the community in the search process.
“Waurika has a lot to offer and we are obligated to our kids and our community to maximize our recruitment efforts in order to find the best candidate,” school board President Kimberly Gholson said. “OSSBA provides an organized plan to accomplish a critical task of obtaining a top leader who will inspire and make a difference in our district.”
The board hosted a community forum on Tuesday. An online survey will be available through March 16 so parents, school employees and other community members can share what qualities they believe are important in the next superintendent. The survey is posted on the school district’s website.
Gholson said board members will use information gathered via the survey and employee forum to help guide its decision making. The board hopes to select a new superintendent in April or May 2018.
