Roaring Fork Schools invite community input on superintendent search

The Roaring Fork School District Board of Education is seeking public input in its search for a new superintendent of schools, starting with a series of “town hall” sessions this week.

“It is very important that we hear from our community about the strengths of our schools and district, the challenges the district is currently facing, what the new leaders’ priorities should be, and what the professional and personal characteristics are that you would like our next superintendent to have,” school board President Kathryn Kuhlenberg said in a news release.

The board recently hired the search consultant firm of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA) to lead the search process for the next superintendent. As part of that process, HYA plans host town halls in each community to inform the development of a leadership profile that will enable the board to identify the next leader who will be the right fit for Roaring Fork School District, the release states.



The town halls are open to the public, and the meetings will be conducted in both English and Spanish.

Town hall session schedule:



Glenwood Springs Elementary School, 6 p.m. Tuesday

Carbondale Middle School, 5:30 p.m. Wednesday

Basalt High School, 6 p.m. Thursday

HYA is also conducting focus groups with a variety of stakeholders and is collecting feedback through an online survey, available in both English and Spanish.
