The Board of Education of Carroll County has initiated its search for a new Superintendent of Schools. To help facilitate this process, the Board has contracted the services of the Maryland Association of Boards of Education (MABE), an agency that specializes in assisting boards with the process for the selection of candidates for educational leadership roles.

As part of the search for a new superintendent, open forums for the community will be held at locations throughout the county to help identify the qualities and characteristics community members want for the new superintendent. The following are the open forum date, times, and locations:

For Employees:

  • Monday, November 13, at 4:30 p.m., in the Board Room at the Board of Education Offices, 125 North Court Street

  • Monday, November 13, at 4:30 p.m., at Manchester Valley High School (media center), 3300 Maple Grove, Manchester

  • Monday, November 13, 4:30 p.m., at Liberty High School (media center), 5855 Bartholow Road, Eldersburg.

For Parents/Community:

  • Monday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m., in the Board Room at the Board of Education Offices, 125 North Court Street

  • Monday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m., at Manchester Valley High School (media center), 3300 Maple Grove, Manchester

  • Monday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m., at Liberty High School (media center), 5855 Bartholow Road, Eldersburg.

Participants will be provided a brief presentation about the superintendent search and participate in group discussions. They also will be asked to answer three questions:

  • What do you feel are the most positive things about Carroll County and Carroll County Public Schools?

  • What characteristics and qualifications do you feel a superintendent should possess?

  • What challenges do you think the new superintendent will face?

These questions can also be found on the school system website at: https://www.carrollk12.org/boe/Documents/StakeholderInputForm.pdf

(continued)

Input from these forums will be compiled, presented to and used by the Board of Education to develop a brochure and advertisement to solicit candidates for the superintendent position. The brochure and advertisement will be posted on the Carroll County Public Schools website and placed in local, state, and national publications.

Individuals or groups that cannot participate in the forums are encouraged to email responses to the questions listed above to kblumsack@mabe.org or mail responses to Kathryn Blumsack, Maryland Association of Boards of Education, 621 Ridgely Avenue, Suite 300, Annapolis, MD 21401. Responses must be received by Monday, November 13, 2017.
