Zoom information for all meetings available at the end of this article.

Focus Questions
  1. What are the strengths of the district and the greater community that will attract new leaders?
  2. What are the challenges the next leader will face?
  3. What are the personal and professional characteristics you would like to see in the district’s next superintendent?
  4. Is there anyone you know who possesses the desired characteristics needed to be the next superintendent?

MCPS recently announced a “national search for the next superintendent of schools.” Below is their announcement:

“The Montgomery County Board of Education is pleased to announce the national search for the next superintendent of schools for Montgomery County Public Schools, who will begin serving on July 1, 2022.

Working in partnership with the search firm of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA), the Board is committed to hiring the best person to lead our school system as we prepare students for success in college and career.

The search will be guided by the Board’s core values, strategic priorities, and desired characteristics gathered this year from input by stakeholders in Montgomery County.

The Board will be gathering input from the community on the critical characteristics of the next superintendent in a number of ways. There is a survey, virtual town halls, interviews, and focus groups with a broad spectrum of community leaders. All of the information gathered will inform the selection of the next superintendent.”
