Local Action Alert: Superintendent Public Forum to be held on Saturday

The Wichita school board plans to announce three finalists for the district's vacant superintendent position at about 4:30 p.m. Friday, with forums for employees and the public to follow on Saturday, according to a press release from the district.

Board members will meet 4 p.m. Friday in a closed meeting at North High School, and at about 4:30 p.m., hold an open meeting to vote on the finalists.

District employees can meet the candidates and ask them questions from 8:30 to 10:45 a.m. Saturday at North High. Forums for the public will be 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at North High.

The board could elect to hire one of the candidates as the next superintendent as early as Saturday night or early next week, president Lynn Rogers said.

Given the UNBELIEVABLY and UNACCEPTABLY short window for public input, it is CRITICAL that we have a good showing from the community to ensure that our concerns are heard and that the Superintendent candidates are fully vetted. With the recent end of our formal desegregation program, the demographic trends in our local schools, the lingering Achievement Gap, the disproportionate suspension and expulsion rates, and the passage of the bond issue, we have a great deal at stake with this decision.

We are asking all of you who are able, to make it a point to attend the aforementioned forum. (Saturday 1:00-4:00pm @ North High)
