Dear USD#116 Community
The Urbana School District #116 Board of Education has begun the search process for a new superintendent for the 2019-2020 school year. We have selected School Exec Connect, an educational search firm, to assist us in this process.
We are interested in receiving your input about the new superintendent. We would appreciate it if you would take five minutes to fill out an online survey. The survey (available from February 25 – March 8, 2019) can be accessed by visiting the below URLs:
In addition to the survey, if you would like to provide input on the district’s strengths, the district’s challenges, and the skills and characteristics the next superintendent should possess, the School Exec Connect consultants invite you to attend the open forum at UHS Auditorium on March 6th at 6:00 pm.
Findings from the survey, the open forums, and several focus group conversations will be used to develop a New Superintendent Profile that will be reported to the Board on March 12, 2019.
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 and only the three finalist candidates’ names will be announced publicly.
The Board of Education looks forward to your support and assistance with this very important undertaking. Please feel free to contact the lead consultant assisting us if you have any questions or comments regarding the search: Ms. Diane Robertson email@example.com.
We look forward to your input as we search for a new superintendent to lead Urbana School District #116.
