Mailbag: Hurley writes: Evansville Schools Administrator Search Information
I know this is an extraordinarily busy time of year, but I wanted to let you know that the Evansville School District will begin its search for a new District Administrator as soon as school restarts in January, and the School Board would like to get as much input as possible. As you know, our District faces many challenges in the year ahead, and the Board wants to do all it can to find the very best fit for a new Administrator. Focus Groups will be held with the Board, staff, students, and the public at large on Tuesday, January 3 and Thursday, January 5. Each session will last about a half hour, and participants will be asked to answer 7 specific questions.
Some sessions are scheduled with specific persons or groups and some are Open Sessions for anyone to attend. Below are listed the dates, times, and places for relevant sessions.
Tuesday, January 3
Open Session 9:00 a.m. District Board and Training Room
Open Session 3:00 p.m. District Board and Training Room
Open Session 5:00 p.m. District Board and Training Room

If you’re interested in attending one of these focus groups please contact Kelly Mosher at the District Office either by phone at 882-3387 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Kelly will need your address, telephone number, and email address so she can confirm with you the date, time, and location of your session and send you the questions to look at before the group meeting.
You can find more information on the District Administrator search by looking under What’s New on the district’s home page. Click on District Administrator Search Update. If you would like to give your input on the DA Search but can’t attend a focus group you can still provide feedback through the Community Survey, which should be posted on the district’s Web site in the near future.
I hope you’ll consider giving us your input. Thanks for getting through this email. Have a wonderful holiday. Hope to see you in the New Year.
