Seeking Community Input

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education is in the process of searching for a new superintendent. The members of the board are seeking your input in this process. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey at the link below. All survey responses must be submitted by September 1, 2016. Results and comments are anonymous, but not confidential. In other words, no one will know who submitted a particular comment, but the results will eventually be released to the public, with any references to specific individuals redacted.

Citizens may also sign up to address the board during the public comment period at any of the upcoming regular board meetings, scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on July 21, August 18, and September 1. All meetings will be held at the Lincoln Center board room, located at 750 South Merritt Mill Road, Chapel Hill, NC. Citizens must sign up to speak before the meeting begins and must otherwise comply with Board Policy 2310, Public Participation at Board Meetings.

Staff and community members are also invited to comment publicly on desired characteristics for the next leader of schools during one of two scheduled public forums. The first forum will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 30 at Chapel Hill High School. The second forum will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 10 at Northside Elementary School.

In addition to input received from the surveys, forums, and public comment, written statements from any local groups or organizations may be submitted to Allison Schafer via mail at NCSBA, P.O. Box 97877, Raleigh, NC 27624, via email at, or via fax at 919-841-4020. These statements should be received no later than Thursday, September 1, 2016.
